FLINT, Mich. (AP) — A poll worker was arrested for public intoxication and making threats of violence at a polling center in Flint, police said.

When police arrived, precinct officials told them that the suspected drunken poll worker had left the polling place on foot.

The poll worker later returned and was arrested, the city of Flint said in a news release. The worker was taken to the Flint Police Department to be processed and lodged.
