Pa. man charged with shooting toward game wardens

Pa. man charged with shooting toward game wardens (AP)

A northeastern Pennsylvania man is in jail after police said he fired shots toward game wardens who were investigating illegal hunting.

Terrance Edward Weiss Jr. of Madison Township was charged Saturday with terroristic threats, simple assault, reckless endangerment and hunting violations.

A Game Commission investigator's affidavit says a wildlife conservation officer and a deputy were checking into a report of the use of corn bait near Moscow when someone yelled at them to stop or he would shoot them.

Investigators say three rounds were then shot at or near them, and Weiss later admitted to firing them.

The 39-year-old man is in Lackawanna County Prison with bail set at $100,000. Court officials say he doesn't have a lawyer on record.
