Kimball man appears in court on threat count


August 15, 2018

HURLEY — An 81-year-old Kimball, Wis., man who is charged with making a terroristic threat appeared in Iron County Court Monday morning.

Robert “Barrel Bob” Gollubske was advised to contact the public defender’s office for legal representation. Bond was continued at $10,000, with a few new conditions added, according to automated court records.

Gollubske is alleged to have told the clerk in the waiting area at the Marshfield Clinic in Mercer, “I can blow this place up and get away with it,” causing fear among employees at the clinic.

He was previously a patient there, but was told verbally and in writing that he was no longer welcome because of previous behavior at the clinic, according to a probable cause statement filed by Iron County Sheriff’s Department Lt. Paul Samardich.

The incident occurred on Aug. 2.

He is also charged with disorderly conduct.

Gollubske was previously charged with threatening to blow up the Iron County Courthouse in Hurley, but the charges were eventually dropped.
