MIFFLIN TOWNSHIP, Oh. -- Shawn Christy from McAdoo, the man who has been on the run for three months after allegedly threatening President Trump and other officials, was arrested today in Ohio.

Local and federal authorities were most recently searching for Shawn Christy in central Ohio after Christy crashed a stolen vehicle off Interstate 71 in Mansfield, Ohio on Sunday.

Christy had been eluding authorities since June.

Shawn Christy fled Schuylkill County to Canada, drove to New York, West Virginia, Maryland, Kentucky and finally Ohio.

He made several stops in his hometown of McAdoo where he continued to steal vehicles to continue evading capture.

Christy allegedly broke into businesses, stealing food and supplies.

He was believed to be armed and dangerous after stealing several guns from family members in Luzerne County.

He was originally wanted for making online threats to President Trump and other elected officials. Christy will likely be facing a long list of charges.

Christy was captured by U.S. Marshals and special task forces from Ohio and Pennsylvania in Mifflin Township near Mansfield, Ohio just before 5 p.m. on Friday.

U.S. Marshals tell Newswatch 16 Christy was found with a knife and a firearm in a densely wooded area.

Christy is expected to be extradited back to Pennsylvania to face a plethora of charges.

    This dude’s harmless.. got caught up in the heat of the moment.. couldn’t control his mouth.. I just watched jack black on a national stage call our commander in chief a piece of shit.. if this guy’s going to have his feet held to the fire then Hollywood should go up in a blaze of glory too.. double standard.. everyone should be held accountable for a certain amount of respect to our staff in the white house..

      I have to agree with Jack Black. The man has always been a POS starting way, way back when his daddy gave him millions to fund his own companies. But, he was the lesser of 2 evils who remains exactly like the person that he’s always shown himself to be. The former contender for Comandress in Chief? That’s a whole ‘nother animal.

      No matter who is President, Any President derserves a certain amount of respect. If you threaten a President you need to be taken out of society.

Liberals need to realize that Democracy means “By the Majority of the People”. Whoever is elected is the majority, and for that time, the Majority rules. THAT is what Democracy is!

        Um………like every President before him has? People say some pretty twisted stuff that they don’t mean and have no intention of following through with. Like Madonna Ciccone? Nobody yanked her away from the microphone when a gazillion screeching harpies were screaming for blood. Sheeeeeeeesh

    In fairness to him, I would do whatever it took to make sure I never went back to McAdoo again either. Threatening the President might have been a little too over the top though.

      A “little too over the top?” Jack black is a POS as is most of Hollywood. It’s a disgrace of humongous proportions.

    This show, patterned after THE FUGITIVE, was only a summer replacement for fake news.

    Next time, we could make it run longer and more profitably by getting good sponsors. Imagine funding the entire police budget from a sideshow.

    Yet another snowflake who now has to accept that Donald Trump is President of the United States of America.

    MAGA.
