The Most Wonderful News
I got the most wonderful news yesterday. Paul Lathrop, host and producer of The Polite Society Podcast, called to tell me that the Sarpy County (Nebraska) prosecutors were dropping all charges against him.
Paul and his wife Susan have their lives back again!
Paul had been charged with making "terroristic threats" and with possession of a firearm during the commission of a felony. These charges stemmed from an accusation by another driver at a truck stop in Sarpy County. That truck driver took exception to how close Paul's student came to his truck at the diesel pumps. He then tried to enter the cab to assault Paul and the student and was told to back off by both the student and Paul. Later, this hothead called the sheriff's department and accused Paul of threatening to shoot him which led to Paul being stopped on the highway and arrested.
You can read more about the incident here.
Paul will now be free to tell about his whole ordeal. The next episode of the Polite Society Podcast will feature it.
I'm just glad to get my friend back from under that dark cloud that had been hanging over him.
