BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office has arrested a man after he said he would shoot an officer "in his head".

On February 3, at about 6:48 p.m., a sheriff's officer contacted 52-year-old Niles Clay on reports of trouble between him and a neighbor. Niles was allegedly aggressive and hostile with the responding officer.

Nearly an hour later, at about 7:44, Niles called East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office communications and allegedly threatened the lives of responding deputies.

According to EBRSO reports, Niles allegedly stated that “If one of those cops come back to my house asking about some dog, I'm gonna try to kill them. I hate yall, I hate the police, I hate Obama, I hate our government."

EBRSO officials say that Niles went on to say "Get a bunch of those [expletive] cops over here cause I want to blow them all up."

When a dispatcher told Clay that a supervisor would contact him, he allegedly replied with "He better call back or I will shoot him in his head."

EBRSO deputies contacted clay at his apartment where he was arrested and charged with public intimidation and harassment charges.
