Man Arrested for Threatening TWRA Officer

A man was arrested in Arkansas after he threatened a Tennessee Wildlife Resource Officer. Thirty-three-year-old James Mitchell Hicks was arrested in Fort Smith, Arkansas on Wednesday. Officials said Hicks threatened to kill a Coffee County TWRA officer. The threat allegedly follows a boating accident on Tims Ford Lake a couple of years ago. Area law enforcement officers have been searching for him in recent weeks due to the threats, which officers are said to have taken seriously.
