A 33-year-old Wichita man was arrested Thursday night after making a “threatening social media post,” an official said. The man, Garrett T. Snell, also made comments to the Wichita Police Department about Mayor Jeff Longwell’s face.

He was booked on a felony threat of assault causing bodily harm. His next court appearance is scheduled for Oct. 30.

According to a Wichita police spokeswoman, the post came from Snell’s account. However, the department, in a tweet, stated that “police officers were also called to a business in regards to an individual in his 40s believed to be distraught.”

“Officers confirmed that individual’s distress was related to threats made toward Mayor Longwell’s face mask and specifically the mayor’s Department of Public Safety mace,” the police department said.

According to The Wichita Eagle, officers received a call that there was a disturbance outside a hotel. “An individual — believed to be a victim in the incident — provided the identity of the man who was acting upset and possibly intoxicated,” police said.
