County man arrested for alleged threats

DANVILLE — A Vermilion County man was taken into custody on Tuesday, accused of making threats toward an Indiana judge.

Ronald O. Treadway, 44, of Westville was arrested and being held at the Public Safety Building jail Tuesday on an arrest warrant issued in Montgomery County, Ind., charging him with three counts of intimidation.

According to Montgomery County, Ind., Sheriff Mark Casteel, Treadway was wanted in connection with threats made toward Montgomery County, Ind., Superior Court Judge David Ault.

Casteel, in a press release, said that around 8:30 a.m. EST Tuesday the county’s court security was alerted to a threatening message left on voicemail and directed at Ault.

Additional security measures were put in place as a result of the threats.

According to Montgomery County court documents, the calls were made by a person identifying himself as Treadway and indicating he had been incorrectly sentenced to incarceration by Ault.

Treadway allegedly made several calls Monday evening and in one indicated he was “coming to get his (Ault’s) robe and gavel.”

Several calls also were made Tuesday morning by a man identifying himself as Treadway, with one saying he was “going after” Ault.

According to court records, Treadway was charged with non-support of a dependent child in Montgomery County, Ind., in 1998.

He received probation which was revoked. He served time in the Montgomery County Jail and Indiana Department of Corrections before being released in 2003.

Treadway is awaiting an extradition hearing with his bond set at $3,000.
