The Washington State Patrol says a Pierce County man has been arrested after threatening Gov. Chris Gregoire.
Officials say it took just six hours to trace the Internet-based threat Tuesday morning back to 51-year-old Robert R. Locke of Graham. Detectives first went to his home before finding him walking along a road and arresting him without incident.
Locke was booked into Pierce County Jail for investigation of one count of making threats against the governor.
