After arrest at airport, Granite Falls mayor released on personal recognizance

The Associated Press

The mayor of Granite Falls was released from jail after police arrested him Monday night at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, alleging he had threatened an adult niece.

Airport spokesman Perry Cooper said Haroon Saleem was arrested after port police responded to a dispute that involved shouting and threats. The Everett Daily Herald said Saleem was arrested for investigation of domestic-violence harassment.

Court papers say Saleem was at the airport to pick up his 13-year-old daughter who had been on vacation in California, where she had quarreled with relatives. The newspaper said the dispute lingered, and the daughter sat apart from her relatives on the flight to Seattle.

King County prosecutor’s spokesman Dan Donohoe said a judge released the mayor Tuesday on personal recognizance pending a charging decision.
