A Chester city councilman has now been charged by state investigators after he made threatening remarks to the city's police chief and another officer.

Odell Williams, 70, is charged with two counts of threatening the life of a public official, according to the news release from the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division.

The charges are felonies and Williams could face up to five years in prison, a fine of up to $5,000 or both, if convicted.

The incident originally occurred following the March 10 meeting of Chester City Council where Williams allegedly confronted Chester Police Chief Andre Williams and another officer in the city hall restrooms.
