Man accused of using a racial slur while terrorizing is behind bars
BATON ROUGE - Officers with New York's Albany County Police Department contacted the Baton Rouge Police Department in connection with 66-year-old Gary Grzybowski, a Baton Rouge resident, who allegedly threatened to shoot several African-Americans in Albany County.
According to a police report, after several black men got into a fight at a mall in Albany, New York on Christmas Eve, a man who police believed was Grzybowski, called the Albany Times Union newspaper and left them a voice message saying he intended to either hurt or kill the men who were fighting in the mall, "so let everyone be warned."
Authorities say Grzybowski's message included the use of a shocking racial slur in reference to the people who were fighting.
Baton Rouge Police report locating Grzybowski, and listening to him confess that he'd overindulged in alcohol and then left the aforementioned message on the newspaper's answering service; he also mentioned that he didn't seriously plan to hurt anyone and that he "likes black people."
Grzybowski was arrested on one count of terrorizing and was booked into East Baton Rouge Parish Prison.
