Enon man facing multiple charges

NEW CASTLE — An Enon Valley man who allegedly pointed a shotgun at his sister and her family now faces a dozen charges.

John Hills Raisley, 49, of 851 Clark Road, is charged with public drunkenness, three counts of recklessly endangering another person, and two counts each of terroristic threats, simple assault, harassment and disorderly conduct.

He was arraigned before District Judge Jerry Cartwright and released on nonmonetary bond. A preliminary hearing is scheduled for Aug. 20.

According to court documents, Raisley, who apparently was intoxicated, had gone to a Little Beaver Township home several times Sunday night and Monday morning, screaming threats and obscenities.

When the occupants of the house attempted to leave to go to work at 5:30 a.m. Monday, court papers said, Raisley was outside with a shotgun and threatened to shoot them.

The victims contacted Pennsylvania state police who filed charges.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
