Man Threatens To Kill State Trooper

Man Threatens To Kill State Trooper
An Osceola, PA man has been jailed after allegedly threatening to kill a state police corporal during an altercation Wednesday afternoon at the Mansfield Wal-Mart.

State police were called to the store at about 5:30 pm on a report of a customer being loud and disorderly. When Cpl. Douglas Smith tried to speak to 41 year old Garon Russell in the parking lot, he continued yelling and screaming. When Officer Jamie Jones of the Mansfield Borough Police Department arrived to help Russell allegedly threatened to kill Cpl. Smith and said the officers were “Mafia Trash.”

When Cpl. Smith advised Russell he was under arrest, Smith allegedly threatened again to kill him. Russell reportedly resisted both officers’ attempts to take him into custody and pulled away, then swung at Cpl. Smith who then used a taser, striking Russell in the chest. Russell then bent over and was able to pull one of the probes out and started to run from the parking lot, chased by both officers.

Cpl. Smith fired another taser shot, which brought Russell to the ground. Russell reportedly continued to resist but was finally handcuffed by the officers. Trp. Thomas Wool from the Criminal Investigation Unit arrived and completed the arrest, charging Russell with two counts each of aggravated assault, terroristic threats, disorderly conduct and one of criminal trespass and resisting arrest.

Police said Russell was determined to be “unfit for arraignment” by District Judge Philip Sweet and was committed to the Tioga County Prison. More local & Regional news...

Garon Russell has been diagnosed with a bi-polar imbalance. When he does not take his medicine, he has
episodes like the one mentioned in Mansfield. This is
not his normal behavior, and I would like to ask the public to please be sensitive to his family and relatives.
Garon is not a criminal or terrorist, but he must be
wise enough to take his medicine and submit to
spiritual counseling and therapy. Thank you for your
kind consideration of this matter. Rev. Paul G. Caram
