A man denied entry into a Capitol Hill nightclub early Saturday was arrested after he threatened gays and whites, Seattle police said.
The 28-year-old man, described as intoxicated by witnesses, was prevented from entering the club in the 1500 block of Broadway shortly after midnight, according to police. He became angry and reportedly said “all white people should die” and “all gay people would be killed,” police said.
The man also acted as if he was armed with a gun and reached toward his waistband before walking away.
Police found the man near the club and arrested him for investigation of malicious harassment, the state’s hate crime statue.
The man was not armed, police said.
