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
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.
