JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Rodney Rhyne, 37, is now out of jail just several days after making threats to shoot four of his supervisors at Chase Financial.
A serious threat.
But Rhyne most likely just had to post $250 for a $2,500 bond.
His neighbor, Evan Tanner, was shocked.
"Wow! That's a little low, especially for making a lot of threats," Tanner said.
Action News tried to contact Rhyne on Tuesday, but no one answered his door or returned our calls.
According to his arrest report, he told a coworker he was going to Orlando to "pick up his AK-47 as well as two Glock pistols" so he could "put a bullet in each of his bosses' heads." The report says Rhyne was upset after he was passed up for a promotion, which he believed to be due to his race.
But after all that, he is a free man right now. So we went to criminal defense attorney Dale Carson to find out if the punishment fits the crime.
Carson says Rhyne's bond of $2,500 is actually pretty typical for a crime of this nature. But he says it is a bit low for Duval County - a county he calls notorious for its high bonds.
"It's not unusual to have a million dollar or half million dollar bond in Jacksonville," Carson said. "But in other parts of the state, Miami most notably, their bonds are rarely ever that high."
But too "high" doesn't exist to neighbors like Tanner.
"If he actually did something that was pretty serious, he should absolutely pay for the crime," said Tanner.
Rhyne is being charged with a misdemeanor for making threats.
