BULLHEAD CITY — A Bullhead City man was arrested Wednesday after reportedly making threatening comments while standing in line at a local bank.

According to the Bullhead City Police Department, Dennis Daniel Moore, 53, was arrested in the 1800 block of Highway 95 on Wednesday afternoon after leaving the Wells Fargo bank in the 1700 block of Highway 95.

Police said Moore was in line waiting for a teller at the bank and employees reported overhearing him make comments about possibly robbing the bank and that he was considering buying a gun to return to the bank and shoot people.

He also reportedly called a teller an offensive name.

He fled the scene before police arrived but was found a short time later, a short distance from the bank.

He was arrested on suspicion of disorderly conduct and threatening and intimidating. He was booked into the Mohave County jail in Kingman.

So a guy makes off the cuff remarks at a bank and gets arrested for it, yet 2 months ago a so called homeless guy walks up to me and threatens to shoot and kill me and then threatens another person shortly afterwards and the police let him off with a verbal warning because he is homeless and 'not all there in the head' according to PD. I ask, where is the equality and equal application of the law in Bullhead? Be homeless and get away with anything you want, or be a disgruntled customer talking smack and get arrested.

Sounds like you were rightly concerned for your personal safety and the difference between the man at the bank and your situation is the former is a SPECIFIC THREAT OVERHEAD BY MULTIPLE people, involving potential robbery and homicide.

You're, OK, and thankfully so are the people,at the bank. The police made the right determination each time.
