Jurors indict Kansas man accused of threatening lawyer

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Federal grand jurors have indicted a Kansas man who’s accused of threatening to “bash in” the head of a lawyer.

The Kansas City Star reports that 52-year-old Rick Draskovich, of Ottawa, was indicted Wednesday on a charge of making the telephone threat on Aug. 31. The alleged victim wasn’t identified.

The U.S. attorney’s office alleges that Draskovich said, “I am about to go to the law firm and bash his . head in.” The indictment also says that Draskovich suggested the lawyer get a restraining order, but added it wouldn’t do any good.

The indictment says Draskovich then said that, “Just by the time he even understands what’s happening, he’s going to get his head bashed in.”

Draskovich’s attorney didn’t immediately respond to an email from The Associated Press seeking comment.
