WILKES-BARRE, Pa. (AP) — A northeastern Pennsylvania doctor has been ordered held for trial on charges that he fired gunshots in his neighborhood and threatened a police officer in what authorities say was an alcohol-fueled incident in February.
The Citizens’ Voice reports (http://bit.ly/ZXww6m ) 60-year-old osteopathic physician Mark Anthony Gonsky waved a preliminary hearing Wednesday and faces a formal arraignment in Luzerne County Court in July.
He’s been free on $5,000 bail since shortly after his Feb. 24 arrest on charges of reckless endangerment, making terroristic threats and disorderly conduct. Investigators say that during the incident he shot into his yard and threatened to kill a Fairview Township police officer.
Gonsky declined comment at the hearing.
