Rockland — A trio of people were arrested Jan.16 — two for criminal threatening and one for drunken driving and failure to stop for law enforcement, said police.

Shane Stockbridge, 18, of Hope and 34-year-old Zane Nelson of Appleton went to 150 Union St. in Rockland where they threatened a male occupant of the residence through the door, according to a police report.

The pair did not make entry to the home, but said they had a gun, according to Rockland Police Deputy Chief Wally Tower.

Karena Staples, 29, of Appleton waited in the vehicle and then drove from the scene with Stockbridge and Nelson as passengers.

The man being threatened called police at about 9 p.m.

Two Rockland police officers, along with assistance from a Knox County Sheriff's deputy, located and arrested Staples, Stockbridge and Nelson in Rockland.

Staples was arrested for operating under the influence.

Stockbridge and Nelson did not have a gun.

Tower said he does not know the relationship between the two parties and does not have information on why the men went to the apartment to confront the victim.
