Time Warner employee threatened to shoot office: DA
A Time Warner Cable employee was charged Thursday for allegedly threatening to shoot up his office on Facebook, the Queens district attorney said.
Jason A. Steward, 29, of the Bronx, was arraigned of making a terroristic threat and aggravated harassment charges for the online posting he said he wrote while drunk, the DA said.
Steward, who works at a Time Warner Cable center in Flushing, had an ongoing dispute with his supervisor over overtime pay and the feud escalated to social network, according to the DA
Another employee alerted the supervisor last week that Steward was writing belligerent posts on his Facebook page.
"I will go to work and blow all them low budget [expletive] heads off," the posting said.
When cops arrested Steward, he said he never intended to hurt anyone, the DA said.
