Man Sentenced For Threatening To Murder Rangers

Cumberland Gap National Historical Park

National Park News

Rangers Greg Mullin and Karen Bradford arrested Darwin Veach last October 3rd for driving under the influence, aggravated DUI, resisting arrest and wanton endangerment following a motor vehicle accident involving two vehicles. During the arrest, Veach resisted and had to be physically overpowered and restrained. As he was being transported to jail, he repeatedly made murder threats against both rangers. The U.S. Attorney's Office decided to charge Veach with interfering with an agency function by resisting arrest and with two counts of threatening to assault and murder a federal law enforcement officer. On March 3rd, Veach was convicted in federal court on all three charges, with an aggravating circumstance of threatening to murder both Mullin and Bradford. On August 4th, Veach was sentenced to six years and eight months in federal prison for threatening to murder the two rangers and for several other violations. Veach's criminal history includes two convictions for vehicular manslaughter, five DUI's, and numerous incidents of resisting arrest. Veach's toxicology report indicated that he had a BAC of .330 when the rangers arrested him.
