Man who served time for Clinton threat is arrested; dad dead


BLACKSTONE, Mass. (AP) — A man who served prison time for a threat to kill President Bill Clinton and who was wanted over the death of his 83-year-old father in Massachusetts has been arrested in New Jersey.

Prosecutors in Worcester (WUS’-tur), Massachusetts, say initial reports indicate Glenn Armstrong was driving a 1995 Chevrolet pickup truck that ran out of gas in Mount Laurel, New Jersey. They say police took Armstrong into custody without incident in a hotel parking lot.

Armstrong was arrested Thursday on a Massachusetts warrant accusing him of failing to submit DNA.

Police found Armstrong’s father, Walter Armstrong, dead in their Blackstone home Wednesday. The father’s 1995 Chevrolet pickup truck was missing.

Worcester District Attorney Joseph Early Jr. says Glenn Armstrong served time in 1994 “for threatening to kill President Bill Clinton.”

Armstrong can’t be reached for comment while in custody.
