[August 26, 2009]  ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) -- An off-duty Anchorage police officer arrested a woman accused of threatening to kill a postal worker because a package was late.

Anchorage Police Lt. Dave Parker said Officer Cameron Hokenson was at the post office Monday on personal business when he witnessed a 64-year-old woman threaten an employee at the postal counter.

Hokenson identified himself, told the woman she needed to calm down and escorted her to another area of the lobby. The woman allegedly told the officer to shut up or she would kill him, too.

Hokenson than asked the woman to leave. According to Parker, the woman responded by fighting and scratching the officer, prompting the arrest.

The woman has been booked into jail on charges of assault, disorderly conduct and resisting an officer.
