Police: Fired employee threw coffee at boss before breaking punch clock

After he became upset over a task that was assigned him, employee Roy Blane Russitano told his boss that he was going to “knock his teeth down his throat,” a Montoursville borough police officer said in an affidavit.

Russitano, 35, employed at Site Safe Solutions at 25 Reading Lane, then “threw a cup of coffee” at his boss, Robert Cochran, who immediately terminated him, the officer said.

As Russintano made his way to an exit door, he broke the company’s punch clock, the officer said.

As a result of this disturbance, which occurred about 7 a.m. Nov. 21, Ruissitano, of 330 Government Place, has been charged with terroristic threats, criminal mischief and harassment. He has been sent a summons to appear before District Judge Gary A. Whiteman.
