Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies have arrested a Helena man after he reportedly threatened to kill staff at a health care facility on Mars Hill Road in the Hoover area.
Deputies responded to a call from the health care office at 11:30 a.m. Thursday. Staff reported that Bobby Lynn Box, 44, had first called the day before, on Wednesday, and said he was in the office’s waiting room and threatened to harm the staff.
Box formerly was a patient at the facility, but the doctor refused to continue treatment after Box threatened to kill the entire staff, according to a press release from the sheriff's office.
When Box called on Dec. 2, he was demanding his medical records. The staff told him they did not have his records at the office.
The next day, about 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, Box walked into the office and demanded his medical records. He reportedly stood at the counter with his hands behind his back. At that time, the staff locked the door to the treatment area, moved to the back of the building and called 911.
Box was arrested and charged with two counts of making terroristic threats. He was in the Jefferson County Jail this afternoon with bond set at $200,000.
The sheriff's office did not release the name of the health care facility.
