There will be no criminal record for a Coldstream man who issued a threat to a train company.
The 56-year-old man will, instead, be dealt with through the alternate measures program, meaning possible community service or writing a letter of apology.
The man was charged with uttering threats after a Kelowna Pacific Railway crew phoned their manager after 8 a.m. on a Saturday in January. The crew said the man ran out of a residence near Aberdeen Road after it had blown its horn and made gestures with his bare hands that he was going to shoot the train conductor.
A short time later, the rail company received a call on its emergency line in which a male voice threatened the rail workers.
