POLICE: Man arrested for threatening to kill Kentucky state senator

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Police say they've arrested a man for threatening to kill a Kentucky state senator.  47-year-old Kurt Lowe is charged with terroristic threatening and fleeing or evading police.

He's accused of making the threat against Senator John Schickel, then taking off when police tried to serve him a warrant on the charge in northern Kentucky.

The threat allegedly came after Lowe filed an ethics complaint against Schickel, but was told that an investigation turned up no evidence to support the allegations.  Lowe is in the Boone County jail, and is due in court on Monday.
