Sea-Tac incident involving Granite Falls mayor tops police blotter

Granite Falls mayor won't be charged for Sea-Tac incident
The King County prosecutor's office has decided not to file charges against Granite Falls mayor because of insufficient evidence.
Haroon Saleem, 58, was arrested on alleged felony harassment charges after threatening a family member at SeaTac Airport. Port of Seattle police received reports of a man shouting at family members and threatening harm. The mayor was at Sea-Tac picking up his daughter after a trip with her cousin. Allegedly, the daughter was treated badly on this trip and the mayor confronted the niece. Saleem is planning on suing the Port of Seattle Police for a wrongful arrest. He feels police discriminated against him.
