OSBI arrests Ponca City man for death threats

Ponca City Now - March 13, 2018 10:36 am

Monday afternoon, special agents with the Oklahoma State Bureau of Investigation arrested a Ponca City man for making death threats to Kay County District Attorney Brian Hermanson.

Agents arrested Joseph Eugene Widener, 52, at his home located at 305 S. 7th.

For months, Widener called the Kay County District Attorney’s Office demanding money from Hermanson.

On March 9, 2018, Widener called for the same reason, becoming very upset, angry, and yelling threats that he was not going to take it anymore and that he would kill Hermanson.

Widener is now in the Kay County jail for attempting, conspiring, or endeavoring to perform an act of violence involving serious bodily harm of death.
