COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) - A Beaufort County man has been arrested and accused of making a threat against Gov. Mark Sanford.
The State Law Enforcement Division says 39-year-old Brian Joseph Macdermant of Hilton Head is charged with threatening the life of a public official.
According to an arrest warrant, Macdermant called the governor's office on Wednesday and threatened to harm Sanford.
Macdermant did not speak directly to Sanford, but a staff member answered the call.
SLED spokeswoman Jennifer Timmons says Macdermant didn't give a specific reason for wanting to harm Sanford.
Authorities didn't know if Macdermant had an attorney and there was no listing for his home on Hilton Head Island.
