Man jailed after bomb threat at Clifton DMV

Derrold McClanahan

A man was jailed Friday on allegations he fought with patrons after making a bomb threat inside the county’s clerk and recorder office in Clifton, prompting a brief evacuation of the facility.

Derrold McClanahan, 46, 526 Centennial Road, tried to run away after being restrained on the ground by a bystander as he yelled obscenities with slurred speech outside Peach Tree Shopping Center, 3225 I-70 Business Loop, according to an arrest affidavit.  He was eventually arrested, but not before allegedly kicking a deputy in the leg..

A witness said McClanahan was being loud and making obscene statements inside the clerk’s office, then tried to fight at least one patron after being told to leave, the affidavit said. Tellers pushed a panic alarms and evacuated the office after McClanahan allegedly claimed there was a bomb inside the building.

A deputy noted a strong odor of alcohol of McClanahan’s breath.
