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.

Milwaukee catcher Martin Maldonado has been suspended five games for sucker punching Pittsburgh’s Travis Snider during a bench clearing brawl on Sunday. You OK with that suspension?

Yes. Seems fair.
No. Baseball NEVER gets it right in these situations. Should have been at least 20 games for his sucker punch into a pile of players.
Not sure, but I’d love to see baseball be like hockey and allow two guys to fight for a while before breaking it up. Let’s see how tough Maldonado is then.
