TULSA, Okla. – A man is accused of threatening to shoot Tulsa County Sheriff Stanley Glanz.

Around 7:45 p.m. Monday, officers were called to reports of shots fired.

A homeowner told police 34-year-old Ramie Tiger went into his home armed with a gun saying “he was going to shoot Sheriff Stanley Glanz and wanted help,” according to a police report obtained by the Tulsa World.

The man told police Tiger then left the home and fired two shots in the air, then stopped a passing vehicle and demanded to use it.

The driver reportedly told Tiger that he was a pastor who was on his way to church.

Tiger then allegedly told the man he would return the car later, according to the Tulsa World.

Police arrived to the scene a short time later and took Tiger into custody.

He was booked into a Tulsa County Jail on armed robbery, kidnapping, possession of a stolen vehicle, threatening a violent act, and reckless handling of a firearm.
