The Ocala Police Department said it is not investigating a threat a Marion County School Board member said she received.
"It's very disjointed and it's very hard to tell exactly what she's speaking about," said Angie Scroble, a spokesperson for the police department.
Scroble said on Thursday she watched video of a school board meeting on Tuesday in which Angie Boynton, the vice chairman of the board, looked directly into the camera and talked to an unknown person who she said was threatening her. "No, I cannot bow down to Islam," Boynton said.
She also said she deciphered a code after 9/11.
"I broke down a code and I sent it to George Bush," Boynton said.
The speech confused and concerned fellow board members.
"As a board, we listened, and this was the first that the board had heard of this, " Bobby James, the board chairman, told Local 6.
James says the board did what it always does when a board member has concerns it offered Boynton assistance, which she declined.
Boynton reiterated to Local 6 what she said at Tuesday's meeting: That she had been threatened by someone, who also claimed to have kidnapped her adult daughter, but she couldn't say who the person was.
She also said she reported it to the local police, who asked if she was in therapy.
The police department says it will offer Boynton any assistance she may need. The school board says it considers it a personal matter.
