A 59-year-old man told police Wednesday that a man threatened him during an Anniston Municipal Court appearance.

The victim and the suspect were in municipal court Wednesday morning for a misdemeanor harassment charge that occurred on Aug. 8, according to Anniston police Capt. Allen George.

George said the victim and suspect were driving on Alabama 202 and the victim allegedly cut the suspect off. The suspect sped passed the victim and stopped at a nearby bridge. The victim told police that as he was driving by, the suspect swerved into his lane, causing the victim to drive off the road. The victim got the suspect’s license plate number and called police, the captain said. The suspect was charged with harassment, a misdemeanor, he said.

During the municipal court hearing, George said, the suspect asked the victim if he was going to prosecute the harassment case. When the victim told the suspect he would, the suspect said “You’ll be sorry,” George said.

The captain said the incident was still under investigation Thursday.

The suspect could be charged with intimidating a witness, a felony.
