Police: Prison Guard Arrested for Threats

WATSONTOWN — A prison guard found himself on the wrong side of a jail cell after police say he threatened his neighbors Thursday in Northumberland County.

Officers in Watsontown say Steve Clapp, a prison guard at Allenwood, faces multiple counts including terroristic threats and reckless endangerment.

Police said Steve Clapp waved a gun and cursed at people and traffic along Main Street.  Authorities said he even threatened a three-year-old boy during his armed tirade.

Clapp’s son, Brandon, was also taken into custody by police but they released him without charges.
