N. Charleston man accused of threatening to hunt down police

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

A 30-year-old man is behind bars accused of threatening to hunt down Charleston police officers after he was arrested at a downtown bar Wednesday night.

The Charleston Police Department charged Thomas Andrew Cattle of North Charleston with threatening a public official and public disorderly conduct.

On Wednesday around 11 p.m., a police officer on patrol spotted Cattle grabbing the balcony railing at the Market Street Saloon while grunting and yelling obscenities.

A police report states Cattle was also seen walking into the Market Street Saloon and the Mad River Bar several times.

According to police, while Cattle was at the Mad River Bar, he leaned his body over the railing and began vomiting "profusely and loudly."

Two bouncers then approached Cattle and told him he had to leave.

Authorities say Cattle began to yell and curse as he was escorted out of the bar. Officers say as they arrested Cattle for public disorderly conduct, he continued to be "offensively boisterous" and yelled at officers.

Employees at the bar said they asked Cattle to leave because they believed he was attempting to smoke marijuana in the bathroom. Officers said they located no narcotics or contraband on Cattle.

When an officer asked Cattle what his name was, Cattle said,"None of y'alls (expletive) business."

A police report states when Cattle was seated in a patrol car he told an officer,"I gonna retaliate on y'all (expletive)."

According to police, when an officer asked him what he meant, Cattle said,"I got guns!"

Authorities say Cattle later told officers,"I'm gonna hunt y'all down...If I go to jail y'all (expletive) is gone."

Cattle was locked up at the Charleston County Detention Center.
