A Glendale man has been arrested for allegedly threatening three Glendale City Council members and a county supervisor.
William Childs Sanford, 49, was arrested without incident as he sat in a Glendale City Council meeting Tuesday, police said. He is accused of making bomb threats against Mayor Ginger Bremberg, Councilman Jerold Milner, Glendale Municipal Court Commissioner Daniel Calabro and Los Angeles County Supervisor Mike Antonovich.
Sanford's hillside home was severely damaged in a November, 1983, fire that authorities attributed to arson, but no one was ever prosecuted and the property was subsequently sold after foreclosure. Sanford repeatedly has accused city and county officials of conspiring against him, police said.
He is being held at the Glendale City Jail in lieu of $10,000 bail.
