CUMBERLAND COUNTY, [PA]--A Middlesex Township man who was accused of threatening to shoot a police officer is looking at up to four years behind bars. Michael S. Filaroski, 43, was sentenced Tuesday by a Cumberland County Judge to 24 to 48 months of confinement on one count of firearms not to be carried without a license. In July, as police were arresting his son, Colin Filaroski, on a drug-possession charge, Michael Filaroski threatened to shoot the police, telling them he was a member of the "Three Percent Militia" -- a self-described, far-right patriot movement that opposes government intervention, except as stated in the U.S. Constitution. Filaroski threatened to shoot everyone involved in his son's case and had a 9-mm handgun stuck in his waist, which a felony conviction out of New Hampshire prohibits him from possessing. A jury in December convicted him of the firearms charge, but its members were deadlocked on a charge of terroristic threats, which the prosecution ended up dismissing. Filaroski has 204 days of credit toward his sentence. View More>>
