Salem Man Arrested After Allegedly Threatening to Kill Officer Following Traffic Stop

May 28, 2017

A 29-year-old Salem man has been arrested by Alma Police on multiple charges including aggravated intimidation of a police officer following a Friday night traffic stop.

Alma Police report they originally stopped Steven Schultz of East Boone because they knew he was driving on a revoked license. During the stop, they report Schultz became upset and told the officer he was not bringing him to jail. When he resisted being handcuffed, the officer pulled out a can of mace Schultz is believed to have mistaken for a taser and allowed one hand to be handcuffed. When the mace was raised again, police were able to handcuff Schultz’s other hand.

Shultz reportedly threatened to kill the officer and take his gun away and shoot him. Once at the jail, he reportedly remained combative and made more threats.

In addition to aggravated intimidation of a police officer, he’s also being held for resisting arrest and driving on a revoked license.
