Threat causes scare at doctor's office

A threat from a patient causes a scare at a Kentucky doctor's office.

Hazard Police say James North called Doctor Mitchell Wicker's office and threatened an employee over the phone.

Police quickly sent an officer to guard the clinic while State Police arrested North at his home.

Both Dr. Wicker and Police say they take threats very serious, especially since the shooting death of Dr. Dennis Sandlin in December.

North is in the Perry County Jail on $75,000 bond.
