People who are potentially dangerous are at their most dangerous when being rejected. If you had to fire someone like this, how would you go about it?

Has anyone ever called you on the phone and threatened to arrest you and take you to the goat house?
Those YouTube recordings of these type of conversations are hilarious. One of them showed a drawing of a house with goats peering out of the windows as visual background to one of these evil scam artists.
