Federal Court Allows Suit Against City to Continue
Meadville – The Third Circuit Court in Philidelphia dismissed a Meadville Police Officer’s appeal that seeks to end a long-running lawsuit against himself and the City of Meadville for the wrongful arrest of a former Allegheny College Student. The Federal Appellate Court dismissed the appeal by Patrolman Jared Frum seeking to remove him from the ongoing litigation in the case of falsely accusing and arresting the student for a barroom assault in 2019. The court determined the patrolman was not protected by qualified immunity. That same year the former student filed a lawsuit against both the arresting and investigating officers, the department, the city of Meadville, and others for a variety of what they felt were violations of his constitutional rights; courts have dismissed suits against most of the defendants except for the patrolman and the city.

Woman Threatens Pizzeria Employees
Franklin – The Franklin Police Department announced charges against a woman who is accused of threatening the employees of a downtown pizzeria in January. Melissa Mix has been charged with terroristic threats and harassment for a January 19th incident during which police say she accused employees of stealing her debit card and threatened to come across the counter and fight with them. When the victims called the police, Mix also called the police about the stolen card, but security footage showed it being returned to her after it was used in a transaction. Court records show Mix has been charged with harassment multiple times in the past.
