The incident dates back to December 2007, but Strykert had apparently missed his May 2008 arraignment on the misdemeanor charge of making criminal threats. The guitarist -- who played on the band's early '80s hits 'Who Can It Be Now?,' 'Down Under' and 'It's a Mistake' -- denied making the threat and was hauled on an outstanding bench warrant.
According to L.A. Times reports on Wednesday, Strykert supposedly made the threat over the phone from his residence in Bozeman, Montana. Sheriff's officials sent Strykert a letter in April ordering him to appear in Malibu court on May 30th.
Hay reportedly told investigators that he didn't believe the guitarist would carry out the threat.
