Man arrested for threatening to kill State Farm insurance agent

A Colorado man was arrested for attempted homicide Friday after showing up armed and intoxicated at a State Farm office and threatening to kill an insurance agent.

Around noon on Friday, multiple people reported to police in Greeley, Colo., that Jacob Maltby, 38, was on his way to a State Farm office in town. Reports said that Maltby was threatening to kill an insurance agent at the office and then commit suicide, according to The Greeley Tribune.

Police were warned that Maltby was armed and intoxicated. Responding officers found him sitting in his parked vehicle outside the State Farm office.

Police found several firearms in Maltby’s vehicle, the Tribune reported. Friday was allegedly the second day in a row Maltby had gone to the State Farm office and become violent. The first incident was not reported to police, and Maltby had allegedly threatened a different person at the office.
