LOCK HAVEN, Pa. (TND) — A man arrested six times since 2021 has been sentenced to prison for the first time.

Lyric Wynn, 23, was in court in Pennsylvania on Tuesday for parole and probation violations stemming from a list of incidents.

Authorities said Wynn tried to break into the Lock Haven Police Department to retrieve drugs that had been seized from him.

Later, police tried to pick him up on a probation detainer, but he ran away, which led to a chase and still Wynn wasn’t done for the day.

Authorities said in jail, he made a comment to a probation officer about how much she valued her life, and then he threw a container of an unknown fluid on the officer.

After that, they said he made several additional threats to harm other people including deputies and correctional officers.

At sentencing, the district attorney said Wynn claimed he was a “non-violent” offender and asked the judge to give him time served.

The D.A. disagreed, saying Wynn “has no respect for this court, no respect for police, no respect for probation officers, and he showed he has no respect for other human beings.”

He added, “The defendant has been given every benefit of the doubt. This is the same guy who tried to burglarize a police department to get his drugs back. Enough is enough. At this point, he has earned a state prison sentence.”

The judge sided with the state and gave Wynn between 17 months and 8 years in prison.
