Jeremy Wiseman arrested for threatening Mesa officers

MESA, AZ - A Valley man threatened Mesa police officers after he was arrested and even referenced the LAPD cop killer, Christopher Dorner , investigators said.

Jeremy Wiseman, 37, was holding a sign that read, "Stop the harassment Mesa Police," and even included his home phone number.

Officers said he had been standing at the intersection of Alma School Road and University Drive for several hours, but was ultimately arrested after he committed disorderly conduct around 3 a.m. Wednesday.

He approached officers shouting profanities and one of the officers noticed he had a gun hidden behind his sign, they said.

Wiseman was hit with a stun gun and arrested.

It was later determined the shotgun was loaded.

According to a news release, when in custody at the Mesa City Jail, Wiseman said that the officer "was stirring up a hornet's nest," and even stated, "You saw what happened to shooting cops in Southern California."

He then said he would bond out and take care of "the problem," the release stated.

Wiseman's wife told ABC15 that the "past couple of months he's had situations where he's gotten tickets for ridiculous things and he's been harassed by them."

Wiseman was ultimately booked on disorderly conduct and making threats.
