A man accused of threatening to “shoot up” a polling place Tuesday in Washington County isn’t registered to vote there, but he is in Elk County.
According to court documents, Christopher Thomas Queen, 48, whose address is listed as Claysville, faces a felony charge of terroristic threats and a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge.
Queen allegedly made the threat after being informed he was not registered at the South Franklin Township polling place where he attempted to cast a ballot. However, according to officials at the Elk County Elections and Voter Registration office, he is registered in Elk County.
Queen is being held in the Washington County Correctional Facility after failing to post bail. Bail was initially set at $10,000 Tuesday, but increased to $50,000 Wednesday.
A preliminary hearing for Queen is set for Nov. 19 before Magisterial District Judge Jay Weller in Canonsburg.
Court records show Queen faced burglary and other charges in McKean County in 2012.
