Man accused of threats to shoot people and blow up stadium

By The Associated Press

ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities say a former worker at the Atlanta Braves' stadium threatened to shoot people there and also to "blow up the place."

Cobb County jail records show 30-year-old Jamar Antonio Golfin is charged with making terroristic threats and acts. He remained jailed Thursday.

An arrest warrant shows Golfin was a temporary worker cleaning a seating area of SunTrust Park, just northwest of Atlanta. The warrant says he'd gotten into an argument with his boss Friday morning and was asked to leave. That's when he's accused of vowing to return and "shoot everyone there."

Braves spokeswoman Beth Marshall tells The Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Golfin worked for a third-party vendor and no longer works for them.

Jail records don't list an attorney who could be reached for comment on Golfin's behalf.
