A Bracebridge court heard recently how a Huntsville man’s anger spilled over into death threats towards several staff members of a local taxi cab company.
On Tuesday, Robert Noftall, 58, pleaded guilty to threatening death.
A Bracebridge court heard that Noftall was denied service by a local taxi company because someone with him was waiting for the result of a covid test.
Noftall became irate and threatened to kill the dispatcher. He then said he was coming to the taxi cab office and asked the dispatcher’s name was so he would know who to kill when he got there.
He also called into other staff members from the company, including the owner of the company, and threatened to kill him as well. The office was locked up for safety and the police were called.
The court heard that Noftall has a criminal record and he was given a suspended sentence and 18 months probation.
