Joseph Anderson

A Richmond man charged with first-degree harassment for allegedly threatening to kill a Livingston County deputy in September waived formal arraignment and entered a plea of not guilty in Division One of Livingston County Circuit Court on Tuesday.

Forty-year-old Joseph Anderson had his case continued to December 3rd.

Sheriff Steve Cox previously reported Anderson fled from Deputy Jay Shirley in a vehicle before stopping in the west part of Chillicothe, physically resisted during the arrest, urinated in the Chillicothe Police Department and K-9 patrol vehicle, spit on one or more deputy sheriffs, and made vulgar comments.
