Menacing and Terroristic Threatening
(Hickory, KY) - Investigators with the Kentucky State Police are attempting to deal with a flood of calls coming into Post after a Kentucky State Police investigation was discussed on a syndicated radio program this afternoon. On December 15, 2003, Trooper Lewie Dodd arrested 53 year-old Kelly Rushing of Fredonia, KY on charges of Menacing and Terroristic Threatening. Rushing is accused of placing anti-government propaganda in the mailbox of Trooper Dodd. Radio talk show host Alex Jones discussed the Rushing case on his radio show, which aired on today's date. After the show was over, Post One received more than 50 calls from people airing their concerns with this case. The calls tied up emergency dispatch personnel and phone lines that are normally used for regular police business. Most of the calls were from people living in the Mid-West and West Coast. We encourage anyone that needs the assistance from the Kentucky State Police to please continue to call. Rushing is scheduled to appear in Lyon District Court Monday April 12, 2004 on the above-mentioned charges.
