Charges filed against Sarcoxie man whose threats forced lockdown at Mercy Carthage

A Sarcoxie man was hit with a felony terrorist threat charge today in connection with a May 8 incident in which he allegedly caused a lockdown at Mercy Carthage.

According to the probable cause statement, Arnulfo Arredondo (DOB 1940) called the Mercy Carthage Pain Management Clinic May 8 to check on an appointment and was told he did not have an appointment and needed to check with the Veterans Administration to schedule one.

Arredondo became aggravated and told the receptionist that he was going to bring a shotgun to the pain clinic and that he was going to shoot everyone and that they would not know when it was going to happen. Mercy Carthage Hospital went into lockdown due to the threats that they had received from Arredondo.
