Fugitive wanted for threatening Trump caught in Richland County
The U.S. Marshals Service says a Pennsylvania man accused of threatening President Donald Trump and law enforcement officials has been arrested in Ohio.
The U.S. Marshals said 27-year-old Shawn Christy was arrested at 4:45 p.m. Friday in Mifflin Township in Richland County. Authorities with the Ohio State Highway Patrol says when he was captured he was armed with a firearm and a knife.
Pennsylvania warrants issued for Christy allege burglary, probation violation and failure to appear for an aggravated assault case.
Authorities say Christy stole a truck Sunday from the area of McAdoo, Pennsylvania, and fled after abandoning it Sunday on Interstate 71 in the Mansfield area, about 65 miles (104 kilometers) north of Columbus.
