NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - A 59-year-old Gentilly man with trash collection complaints was arrested Sunday (Sept. 19) after allegedly threatening to shoot Mayor LaToya Cantrell in a recorded call to the city’s 911 communications center.

Court records show Daniel Jenkins was arrested at his home in the 1300 block of Jay Street shortly before 1:30 p.m., less than an hour after he allegedly called the city’s 911 line from his cell phone to threaten violence. According to an NOPD officer’s preliminary report, Jenkins on the recorded call “threatened to go to City Hall (on Monday) and shoot Mayor Cantrell if he could not get trash service or someone to answer questions.”
