According to the Gazette, Cedar Rapids Police Department in Iowa arrested the 52-year-old African American man, Robert Noye, on Monday and charged him with first-degree harassment and false imprisonment. 

A complaint filed against him stated that he forced the woman to sit and watch the 9-hour long mini-series.

When the woman made an attempt to leave, Noye told her to “remain seated and watch the movie with him or he would kill her and spread her body parts across Interstate 380 on the way to Chicago”.

The hugely celebrated movie received 37 Primetime Emmy Award nominations and won nine. In addition to that, it won a Golden Globe and a Peabody Award.
