Man accused of threatening partiers in Watford City

WATFORD CITY, N.D. — A Texas man is accused of using a vehicle and a gun to threaten people at a party in the North Dakota oil patch town of Watford City.

Authorities allege 43-year-old Waylon Palmore, of Kirbyville, Texas, pointed his pickup at a group of partiers across the street from his mobile home early Sunday and revved the engine.

The Williston Herald reports when one of the partiers blocked his truck with another vehicle, Palmore alleged pointed a handgun at the group.

Palmore faces a felony terrorizing charge with a maximum sentence of five years. Court documents don’t list an attorney for him. A listed telephone number couldn’t be found for him in Watford City, and listings in Texas are disconnected.

Palmore could enter a plea at a Sept. 10 hearing.
