A Perry man was arrested Friday after allegedly violating a protective order by sending threatening voice mails to the protected party.
Ronald Daniel Landals, 30, of 816 Fourth St., Perry, was charged with violation of a no-contact order.
The protective order was issued Sept. 16, 2020, as a result of an incident that led to Landals’ arrest on charges of domestic assault-impeding flow of air/blood and child endangerment. The case is pending in Dallas County District Court.
According to court records, Landals allegedly left five voice messages on the protected party’s phone between Feb. 20-22. In the messages, he is allegedly heard to say, “You better hope and pray that I am civil when I get back home,” and “Here is a word of advice: run! I don’t have it in me any more!”
The protected party told law enforcement “that the messages make her feel unsafe,” according to court records. The warrant for Landals’ arrest was ordered and served Friday.
Landals is held in the Dallas County Jail without bond in advance of an appearance in Dallas County District Court.
