Willnauer explained that certain portions of the parceled land involved had been changed from a tax exempt to a non-exempt status. The defendant demanded proof of that immediately. Willnauer said that he had provided that information to him previously. The defendant denied this and continued to demand proof. Willnauer said this would take some time. The defendant at this point became enraged and reached across the counter grabbing Willnauer’s necktie as described above. The defendant continued to yell threats at Willnauer which was [sic] variously reported by witnesses as ‘do you think you can do this to me, I’ll show you’; 'there’ll be ramifications, you can’t do this to me’; [and] 'if you don’t give it to me, there will be ramifications.’"
