WENATCHEE- A Leavenworth area man accused of assaulting motorists on US 97-Blewett Pass last week was in court Wednesday. Stuart Anthony Campbell is charged with Felony Assault, Harassment and Malicious Mischief in connection with the July 26th incident. Campbell entered a not guilty plea at this arraignment in Chelan County Superior Court.
Officials say Campbell was arrested after stacking sticks and logs across the roadway and then throwing the logs at passing motorists causing damage to at least one car’s windshield. Campbell also allegedly threatened to kill the Prius driver as well as a passer-by who tried to help her.
Chelan County Deputies arrived and were forced to use a taser on Campbell in order to restrain him. His trial date is set for September 25th. His next scheduled court appearance is August 29th for an omnibus hearing.
