A Marin County man is scheduled to be arraigned in Marin County Superior Court Monday morning for allegedly threatening to shoot county sheriff’s deputies and park rangers. Charles Byon Nishi, 40, allegedly made the threats Monday in an e-mail he sent to the U.S. Air Force in Washington, D.C. The Air Force then contacted the Marin County Sheriff’s Office. Nishi said deputies and rangers were hunting him and “endangered lions”, sheriff’s Sgt. Debra Barry said. A sheriff’s deputy who is familiar with Nishi found him in the 1800 block of Ignacio Boulevard in the Indian Valley Preserve near Indian Valley College in Novato around 6 p.m. Wednesday, Barry said. Nishi was unarmed when he was arrested for threatening a crime to terrorize. He is being held in the Marin County jail under $50,000 bail. Nishi said he has a post office box in Kentfield but has no fixed address, Barry said.
