By BBN Staff: Deputy Prime Minister, Patrick Faber, responded to questions on Thursday about an incident which happened last month in Henry County, Georgia, in which he was allegedly detained by police outside of a school as a result of a “domestic incident”.
According to the Henry County Sheriff’s Office, two schools were placed on lock-down after they received threatening phone calls calls. Henry County police say the call was in regards to a domestic situation. The schools were placed on lock-down and one person was detained outside the school.
Police did not release any other details of the incident and Faber’s name was never mentioned in the report.
When questioned about it by the media this week, however, Faber did not deny the incident but would not offer any comment as to the specifics of the incident. Faber instead told the media that he would await a statement from the US Embassy in Belize and the US State Department. No statement from either agency, however, has been forthcoming.
