Ninety Six man in custody after allegedly pulling a gun on Duke Energy worker

A 74-year-old Ninety Six man was arrested Thursday after police say he pulled a gun on a Duke Energy worker attempting to replace some old wires.

According to a report from the Greenwood County Sheriff’s Office, a Duke Energy worker was sent to replace some old wires on a building at 4512 Ninety Six Highway. The worker said the James Milton Harter, 74, came across the road and asked him what he was doing. The worker explained that he was replacing old wires that could potentially be a fire hazard.

According to the report, the worker came down off his ladder and was explaining to Harter what he was doing when Harter began pointing a gun at him. The worker said that Harter told him that he could not leave until he talked to someone at Duke Energy. The worker said that Harter got more agitated and began saying he was going to “kill everybody.”

According to the report, the worker ran into the woods in fear of his life when Harter began yelling. When police arrived on the scene, Harter was standing near the worker’s truck with a gun in his hand. Harter refused to drop the weapon until an officer walked up to him and put him in handcuffs. The gun, a Colt .357, was loaded. Police also found a loaded .22 Magnum in Harter’s pants pocket. Harter told police that he did not have a concealed weapon permit.

Harter was arrested and charged with unlawful carrying of a pistol, pointing and presenting a firearm, kidnapping and third degree assault and battery.
