BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities in northwestern Arizona say a man is accused of making threatening phone calls to Bullhead City officials.

Police say 59-year-old Matthew Joseph Farrell has been booked into the Mohave County Jail in Kingman on suspicion of five counts of threatening and intimidating.

Police say they were notified of several phone calls that allegedly threatened the lives of Bullhead City’s mayor, county judges and a city prosecutor.

They say the calls were made to the City Clerk’s Office and the Bullhead City Justice Court.

Police were able to obtain the phone number where the calls originated from.

Investigators say Farrell is a Bullhead City resident who allegedly was upset about a civil court case.

He was arrested Thursday night at a local bar. It’s unclear if he has a lawyer.
