ORIGINAL POST: September 22, 2015

A Boise man is bars, charged with two felonies, after Boise police said he harassed a neighbor over "national origin."

Law enforcement officers were summoned to a Boise neighborhood in the evening hours of Sept. 20. That's when neighbors told police they feared for their safety as the suspect was yelling remarks outside their home. During their investigation, police said they also found evidence the suspect had previously left a threatening note for the same victims a few days earlier. 

Billy Woodie, 62, of Boise, was booked into the Ada County Jail on two felony counts of violating Title 18, Chapter 79 of Idaho State Code, which makes it illegal for "any person, maliciously and with the specific intent to intimidate or harass another person because of that person's race, color, religion, ancestry or national origin," to "threaten, by word or act, to do the acts prohibited if there is reasonable cause to believe that any of the acts [causing physical injury or damage, destruction or defacement of property] will occur."
