Man Accused of Pointing Loaded Gun, Threatening to Kill Another Man

Man Accused of Pointing Loaded Gun,
Threatening to Kill Another Man

A 71-year-old Bradford Township man accused of threatening to kill another man with a shotgun at his home and outside Marsh’s Bar Wednesday night is in jail.

Paul Smead is accused of going to the Gates Hollow home of Donald Stoddard at around 8 p.m., pointing a loaded shotgun out of the window of his pickup truck and yelling, “I’ll kill you.”

According to papers filed in District Judge Rich Luther’s office, Smead then backed out of the driveway and drove to the parking lot of Marsh’s Bar, and Stoddard followed him. In the parking lot, Stoddard got out of his truck and crouched beside it so Smead couldn’t see him. As Smead continued along the side of Stoddard’s truck with his shotgun, Stoddard was able to tackle him and knock the gun out of his hands.

Stoddard held Smead to the ground and secured the gun with his foot. Smead kept yelling that Stoddard was a coward and he would kill him. He also yelled at witnesses, telling them to “shut the **** up” while they attempted to calm him down.

Bradford City Police took Smead to BRMC, where a lab test showed his blood alcohol content was .23 percent. While he was at the hospital he allegedly told police several times that when he got out of jail he would kill Stoddard.

According to the court papers Smead told officers that he knew he was drunk and shouldn’t have driven but that Stoddard has been harassing and stalking his daughter for a long time and something had to be done about it. Officers asked what he intended to do Wednesday and he said, “I was going to kill him.”

Smead is charged with aggravated assault, a felony, as well as misdemeanor counts of terroristic threats, recklessly endangering another person, simple assault, disorderly conduct, harassment and DUI.

Smead’s bail is set at $100,000 and a preliminary hearing is scheduled for November 10 in Luther’s office.
