Charges have been no-billed for a Wichita Falls man police said threatened to kill officers and paramedics if he did not get a cigarette right away.

Back in April, Robert Weldon Neel, 44, was charged with two counts of retaliation by threat and one count of resisting arrest.

A Wichita County grand jury has failed to indict Neel on the retaliation charges.

Police were called to an apartment after a report of a man with a head injury.

When officers arrived, they said Neel was cussing at several women before they even asked a question, and when they asked if he needed medical attention he said he would kill both officers.

Then said he wanted a cigarette and if he didn’t get one, he would kill them.

Paramedics then came in and police said Neel pointed at each officer and paramedic and made threats against each of them, then tried to slap one of the paramedics.

That’s when officers got in a brief struggle with Neel and handcuffed him.

They said during the struggle, Neel continued his threats to kill them.
