What is RIOTs stance on their own family members threatening other players with bans? I was just in a game in which a Gragas on the opposite team with a poor attitude threatened to have her hubby who she said worked at RIOT, ban me, because she told me to "shut the f up" multiple times and I didn't.

Now it obviously occurs to me that this person could be some kid who is full of it but if it is a RIOT family members account I dont think it's okay for them to be telling people they can get someone banned or have them flag a tribunal case.

I won't post the summoner name here because of the summoner's code but if someone from RIOT wants it in a PM i'll be glad to provide it.

I also reported the player in game.

Last sentence... There you go. If I see that in the tribunal it's punish.

I quite, quite hope that this is simply a case of as you surmised; a player being full of it and trying to use leverage and fear - in which case, it's still a horribly stupid act and should be punished.

But in the small, remote off-chance that this person is legitimately related to a Riot member...

Then this is a astronomical issue that has "Watergate" written all over it. And needs to be snuffed out, with insane haste.

They are full of it. Either that or putting their husband's job in jeopardy.
