Centralia Man Faces Criminal Damage ChargeA 19-year-old Centralia man had bond set at $10,000 after being formally charged in Marion County Court with criminal damage to government supported property and unlawful possession of drug paraphernalia.
Briton McCray of South Brookside was originally stopped by Centralia Police while walking in the 300 block of East Broadway. They had received a complaint earlier that McCray threatened and yelled profanities at a man who had asked him to keep his cursing down.
McCray was also combative with police, with an officer eventually having to threaten use of his tazer before he could be handcuffed. McCray had to be taken to the hospital after allegedly causing a large gash to his forehead by hitting his head on a divider in the squad car.
