A woman said a dispute over WiFi led to a man making terroristic threats last week.

Arcade police responded to a residence on Rock Forge Rd. where the woman said she and a man got into an argument over him turning off WiFi in the house so she couldn’t use her phone.

The woman alleged that the man then told his grandmother over the phone, “You need to get her out of here. You’re gonna make me kill that b----,” according to the incident report.

The man confirmed to police that he did want the woman gone from the residence but denied making threats.
