Council president allegedly threatened

Posted: Updated:

WARREN, Ohio - City council president Bob Dean reported threats being made to him and his wife.

Dean says that he received a message at 6:40 p.m. Wednesday evening stating, "you better be in jail before I kill you."

Just two minutes later at 6:42 p.m., Dean says another message was left, but he couldn't make out what the caller was saying.

At 7 p.m. someone allegedly arrived at Dean's wife's bible study at New Jerusalem Church ranting, saying that she should "consider this a threat."

Later that night, Dean says there was a black camaro with its lights on sitting outside of his house.

Yesterday, Dean responded to criticism for the way he chose to allocate funds after the funerals for six teenagers that lost their lives due to drowning. It is unclear whether the alleged threats are related to these events.

Lieutenant Cole from Warren police department says that no one is charged in this case yet, and the case is still under investigation.
