Md. inmate charged for threats

By David P. Marino-Nachison

An inmate at the St. Mary's County Detention Center threatened a judge and a state's attorney after breaking a television set, according to the county sheriff's office.

Inmate Antonio W. Gantt, 43, of Leonardtown, pulled a television off the wall and threw it on the floor on Feb. 12, according to authorities.

Gantt was charged with destruction of property and two counts of threatening public officials.

Sounds like something the average housewife does when someone gives a bogus price for the showcase on the Price Is Right.

Is television really THAT bad? I've lived in a cave all my life, so I don't know...

And what's a Bieber?

Let's hope he gets a fair trial and the County has the common sense to bolt down their TVs next time.

Let's hope he's stamping license plates to pay for a new TV.
