A Williamsburg, PA, woman is accused of threatening a Hollidaysburg police officer with what she calls “white witchery” if he didn’t drop her grandson’s felony drug charge, Pennsylvania State Police (PSP) report.
Celestia Barker III, 74, of Williamsburg, is accused of calling Hollidaysburg Police March 27 to ask an officer to drop the felony charges against her grandson, saying he only had a small amount of marijuana and a pipe.
She allegedly told the officer that she practices “witch” activities and he’d be in jeopardy if he failed to drop the charges, WTAJ reports.
The officer hung up and Barker proceeded to call back numerous times and even called Blair County Dispatch three different times, court records show.
When state police questioned Barker she replied “Yes, I did do that. Is there a law against it?” After being told there is a law against it, Barker then explained to the trooper that she practices “white witchery” and that they “best be looking over their shoulder.”
Barker is now facing a felony charge of threatening unlawful harm to a public servant to the judicial process.
