An Alabama man who allegedly threatened Floyd Medical Center and Harbin Clinic employees was behind bars Friday evening.

According to jail records:

Robert Gordon Kornick, 59, of 550 County Road, Centre, Ala., was arrested on an outstanding warrant and charged with two felony counts of terroristic threats and acts.

Warrant information states that on Thursday, Kornick threatened staff members at Floyd Medical Center by stating “Remember Fort Hood,” referring to the recent shooting at the Texas Army base.

He also threatened doctors and other staff members of Harbin Clinic’s cardiology unit, according to the jail records.

Warrant and jail information states that FMC and Harbin Clinic have heightened security checks and Rome and Floyd County police officers have been keeping checks after Kornick’s threats.

No bond was set for Kornick late Friday.
