  • Federal prosecutors have filed a complaint against a Skiatook man who allegedly threatened U.S. Rep. John Sullivan.
    The Tulsa World (http://bit.ly/OGCXX4) reports that court documents released Wednesday indicate Wayne Miles went to Skiatook police July 22 and accused Sullivan of putting a "hit" out on his life. He allegedly said he would shoot the congressman.
    In an affidavit, Officer Jerry Bullard wrote he believed Miles is "mentally unstable," but had the capability of carrying out the threat. Firearms and ammunition were found in Miles' home.
    FBI special agent Clay Simmonds says Miles was released after posting bond but was later arrested on federal complaints.
    Miles' attorney, Stephen Greubel, couldn't be reached for comment.
    Sullivan says he thought it was a joke initially, but later became concerned for his family's safety.
