Roommate of Mitchell Johnson Charged with Terroristic Threatening

FEBRUARY 8, 2007 - Posted at 4:03 p.m. CST

 

FAYETTEVILLE, AR - A 22-year-old man who was convicted as a youth for killing his father with a crossbow has been formally charged with threatening to kill the mother of his child.

Justin Wade Trammell was charged yesterday in Washington County with terroristic threatening, a felony.

Prosecutor's say Trammell's girlfriend, Chelsea Jabusch, told police that Trammell had threatened to shoot her on December 29.  Terroristic threatening is punishable by up to six years in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Trammell was released January 26 from the Washington County jail on $25,000 bond.

On New Year's Day, Trammell was pulled over by Fayetteville police in a vehicle with one of the Westside shooters, Mitchell Johnson.  Police say the two were roommates in Fayetteville.

At the time of the January 1 incident, police say they found Johnson in possession of a loaded handgun and a small amount of marijuana.  Trammell was given a ticket and Johnson was arrested.
