McConnellsburg Man Jailed For Threats

A McConnellsburg man was sent to the Franklin County Prison last Tuesday evening for threatening four individuals and has since been released on $25,000 bail.

Walter Freeman Lane III, 27, was arraigned before Magisterial District Wendy Mellott on four counts of terroristic threats and one count of disorderly conduct. The charges stem from an incident that occurred at Lane’s home located at 22344 Great Cove Road.

According to state police, Lane was involved in a domestic dispute while in a highly intoxicated state. Additional individuals arrived at the home and observed Lane allegedly throwing a stool, punching a wall and searching for his gun to harm himself and the victims. During the incident, Lane is also accused of “slightly pushing” a trooper and raising his fist to another trooper.
