SUGAR LAND — In case their Plantation Bend neighbors had any questions about how Doug and Wendy McKain feel about Barack Obama, the bumper sticker on their pickup could be a clue.
But when Chynethia Gragg spotted the sticker — depicting someone urinating on the name "Obama" — Sugar Land police say, she stopped to express her disapproval, and that's when things got ugly.
Gragg, 35, has been charged with making a terroristic threat after confronting the McKains, telling them the sticker was racist, police said.
Gragg declined to comment, and her attorney, Roy Smith, said he would have to review the police report and talk with his client before commenting.
Doug McKain declined to comment.
According to court documents, police officer H. Norris went to the couple's house about 3 p.m. Tuesday to investigate a verbal disturbance.
Court documents said Gragg told Norris she saw the sticker on the back of a pickup and stopped in front of the McKain house. She told Norris she confronted McKain about the sticker, saying it was racist.
McKain told the officer he and his wife were driving home when they noticed a female motorist looking closely at his truck. The couple drove home then pulled into their driveway.
"Mr. McKain said shortly later the same person (Ms. Gragg) pulled up to his residence (blocking his driveway behind his truck.) Mr. McKain said Ms. Gragg began to rant and rave about the sticker on the back of his truck," the court document states.
McKain told police Gragg shouted numerous profanities at him and his wife.
"Mr. McKain said Ms. Gragg said she (would) get someone to take care of him later," the report said.
Gragg was issued a trespass warning and then arrested on the threat charge, a misdemeanor. She was released Wednesday from the Fort Bend County Jail on $500 bond.
Instead of my house, I would have let Chynethia follow me into a densely wooded area.
