ORRSTOWN, Pa. - An Orrstown man who was the subject of a search by Pennsylvania State Police last week waived his preliminary hearing Tuesday in Franklin County Central Court.
John F. Miller, 30, of 9214 Iron Bridge Road, is charged with two counts of simple assault and one count each of terroristic threats and recklessly endangering another person in the Sept. 19 incident at his home. He is scheduled for mandatory arraignment on Nov. 8, according to court records.
Miller's bail was lowered from $100,000 to $20,000 Tuesday, Magisterial District Judge Larry Pentz said.
Miller got into an argument with Matthew Alan Johnson, 22, of Port Orange, Fla., at about 3 a.m. and told Johnson he was going to shoot him, police said. As Miller went to get the gun, Johnson told police he ran to a neighbor's house, according to the affidavit of probable cause.
Johnson told police that while he was outside, Miller pointed a shotgun at him, police said.
