SunTrust Park worker allegedly threatened to ‘blow up’ stadium, ‘shoot everyone there’ 

A man who worked at SunTrust Park is behind bars after getting into an argument with his boss and threatening to “blow up” the stadium and “shoot everyone there,” according to his arrest warrant.

Jamar Antonio Golfin, 30, has been in jail since Saturday on a felony charge of making terroristic threats or acts, Cobb County jail records show.

Golfin, a temporary employee assigned to clean a seating area of the stadium, got in trouble Friday morning for walking off during a break and was asked to leave the ballpark, according to his warrant. The Braves hosted the Cincinnati Reds later that night.

As he was walked out, Golfin reportedly got upset and became verbally abusive toward his boss and a Braves security guard. He allegedly threatened to “kill them all” and told his supervisor he “would come back and shoot everyone there,” his warrant said. Golfin also allegedly said he’d be back to “blow up the place.”

He was arrested the following day in Chamblee and remains in the Cobb County jail on a $16,720 bond, records show.

Braves spokeswoman Beth Marshall confirmed Golfin worked for a third-party vendor and is no longer employed by them.
