New Port Richey, Florida -- A 16-year-old New Port Richey teen is accused of threatening to kill an arresting officer, the officer's family and blowing up the police station once he is released.
According to a Pasco County Sheriff's Office report, Brandon Youngerman was being arrested on a Juvenile Pick-up Order when he began fighting with officers. The report says Youngerman was spitting and banging his head on the patrol car. Officers shackled and hobbled him, but he continued to spit at officers and tried to bite one of them. He was then fitted with a spit mask.
Youngerman allegedly began screaming for the officer to take off his handcuffs, because he was going to blow up the police station with a bomb.
He was taken by officers to Northbay Hospital after he told them he had taken two "Roxy" pills two hours prior. Once at the hospital, Youngerman continued to threaten the officer's life and told him once he got out of the Juvenile Detention Center he was going to get his "boys" and come to the officer's home to kill him and his family. He also threatened again to blow up the police station.
Once cleared from the hospital, Youngerman was taken to Morton Plant Behavioral, because he was threatening to commit suicide and was treated before being released to the JAC.
Youngerman was charged with Disorderly Conduct, Resisting Arrest with Violence, two counts Threatening Public Servant and Threat to Discharge Destructive Device.
