PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A suspended Providence police officer will face a judge again Friday, to be arraigned on new threat charges.
Scott Logan, 45, was arrested in Johnston on Wednesday afternoon and is now being held as a bail violator after he was cuffed for the second time in less than a week for two separate series of texted threats.
Logan was ordered held without bail during a court appearance Thursday. He was arrested by Johnston police on cyber harassment and disorderly conduct charges connected to what investigators called threatening text messages sent by Logan to his doctor.
Johnston police allege that what followed were several messages that threatened the doctor and his family.
“You cross me, you pay the price. Keep a close watch on your loved ones too,” Logan allegedly texted.
“The only trouble I will be in is when I snap your neck like a turkey bone.”
In August, Logan was suspended without pay when he was indicted for possessing a Colt .380 with an unreadable serial number that police allege was found in his gym bag.
Longtime Logan neighbor: ‘No indication anything was wrong’
Meanwhile, a neighbor of Logan’s has come forward saying the only change she saw as of late was Logan doing more work on his property. But, beyond that, there was no indication anything was wrong. The woman said she has known Logan for 15 years.
The longtime Johnston neighbor did not want to be identified, but told Eyewitness News Logan was a model, generous resident.
Logan is scheduled to appear in Kent County Courthouse Friday morning to answer to the newest charges.
