ALBANY, Ore. (AP) — FBI officials in Oregon and Albany police have arrested a 64-year-old man accused of threatening an Oregon public official.

Ryder made his initial appearance before a U.S. Magistrate Judge on Wednesday. The judge ordered him released pending further court proceedings.

It wasn’t immediately known if Ryder has a lawyer to comment on his case. The name of the public official who was threatened wasn’t released.
