A man was recently indicted on multiple charges, including that he threatened a Perry County judge.
This month, Herbert Ladner, 49, formerly of Salem, New Jersey, was indicted on seven charges related to crimes he allegedly committed in October. According to the indictment, Ladner is being charged with DUI, second-degree assault, third-degree terroristic threatening, possession of an open alcoholic beverage container in a motor vehicle and traffic charges.
In October, Ladner, the indictment said, was found to be operating the motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol and/or intoxicating substances and had an open container of Southern Comfort in the vehicle. Ladner, said the indictment, also allegedly beat a female victim with his fists, causing serious physical injury to her.
In addition to the vehicle violations and allegedly beating Holland, court documents said that Ladner threatened to harm Judge Cody Goehring by “breaking the judge’s neck” and threatened to “beat his ass.”
Ladner’s bond is set in the amount of $10,000 cash bond and he is scheduled to appear in court for his arraignment Dec. 5.
