>>>>>A McKeesport man has been charged with terroristic threats and other crimes after Allegheny County sheriff's deputies said he threatened to "beat a judge from one end of Grant Street to the other."
Sylvester Warren, 51, was captured early today, hours after sheriff's deputies said he went Downtown to the Superior Court prothonotary's office in the City-County Building to file an appeal to a lower court decision. Witnesses told deputies he became upset when he was told he could not do so and then said three times that he would assault a judge.
One witness recounted Mr. Warren saying, "I'm going to get a big lunch, a bottle of whiskey, and I am going to wait for the judge and I am going to beat the judge from one end of Grant Street to the other until the cops pull me off of her."
That prompted sheriff's deputies to issue a warrant for Mr. Warren's arrest.
A team of officers searched homes he was known to frequent Wednesday night, and found him in Clairton just after 12:30 a.m.
He was jailed and charged with terroristic threats, harassment and disorderly conduct.
