CRAVEN COUNTY -

New Bern Police are investigating, after New Bern Alderman Johnny Ray Kinsey says he was verbally threatened late Sunday. Kinsey says it started after his niece had been arguing with a man over the phone. Kinsey then went to 19-year-old Marcus Pompey's New Bern home to discuss the incident. That's when he says Pompey threatened him. The New Bern Sun Journal reports Pompey turned himself into police Monday and faces a misdemeanor charge. He's scheduled to appear in court later this month.
