A Beaufort man was arrested Tuesday evening in connection with a threatening voicemail left for Beaufort City Manager Scott Marshall.

Thomas Virgil Armstrong, 65, was charged with Threatening the Life, Person or Family of a Public Official, Teacher or Principal.

According to Beaufort Police spokesperson Lt. Charles Raley, verbal threats were made via voicemail to Marshall between 2:30 and 3 p.m., Monday, which were in turn reported to the Beaufort Police Department.

As of Tuesday night, Armstrong remained incarcerated at the Beaufort County Detention Center.

Marshall assumed his position as City Manager just last week. He succeeds Bill Prokop, who retired earlier this month.
