A Jeddo man who was committed to the Carbon County Prison, Nesquehoning, last month on charges filed against him by Summit Hill police has been arraigned before District Justice Casimir Kosciolek on further charges, including threatening to kill a police officer.
Police Chief Joseph Fittos Jr. said William March, 38, of Jeddo (Freeland) was jailed after he was arraigned before District Justice Edward Lewis on charges of one count each of escape, trespass by motor vehicle and driving while operating privileges are suspended and two counts of persistent disorderly conduct.
At the time of that arrest on March 25, Fittos said Marsh was in a vehicle that was parked on the grassy area of South Market Street in the vicinity of the Ginter Field, when he exited it and was acting irrational and disorderly at the scene. Fittos said Marsh left the area and then returned to the scene where he continued to be disorderly.
The police chief said the man continued to "act up" even during the entire time he was in custody.
Regarding the latest charges, the police chief said Marsh, while in custody for the above offense, threatened to kill an officer and made other threats, resulting in him being charged with aggravated assault, terroristic threats and harassment.
He was committed to jail in lieu of $2,500 that was set by Kosciolek.
