Man Wanted For Terroristic Threats; Mistrial In Merlino Case; Student Benched For Religious Headwear

Police in Upper Darby are searching for a man who allegedly threatened to kill the members of his church. Police say that 59-year-old Sherwood Hargrove is wanted for making the terroristic threats against the congregation. The incident happened at the church located on the 3400 block of State Road in Drexel Hill. During the service, Hargrove was asked to leave and as he was being escorted he shouted "Y'all are going to die, and they told me how to do it." He eventually left the church. Anyone with information an Hargrove's whereabouts are asked to contact police.

UPDATE: Upper Darby Police say that Sherwood Hargrove is now in custody.

A mistrial has been declared for the racketeering trial of a notorious mob boss from Philadelphia who stated he quit a life of crime after a long term in prison. Jurors of the trial for Joseph "Skinny Joey" Merlino informed US District Judge Richard Sullivan that after 4 days of deliberation they reached a deadlock. Prosecutors say that instead of retiring after his prison sentence, Merlino moved his way into gambling and health insurance schemes run by crime families on the East Coast. The scheme used money to bribe doctors to write fake pain cream prescriptions for people who had no sicknesses. There is no word from officials on whether they would seek another trial against Merlino.

A student at Mastery Charter School in Philadelphia was benched on the school's basketball team over the weekend for not taking off her religious headwear. Officials at the school say that the referee approached Nasihah Thompson-King and said that she could not play unless she had the proper paperwork to wear her hijab during the game. Anything worn on a player's head, either for medical or religious reasons, must be approved by the Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association. Officials say that the coach had been warned of the need for a waiver 2 days before the game. Even though it is an enforced rule, the Executive Director of Athletics for Philadelphia Schools, Jimmy Lynch, stated that needing a waiver is an unfair requirement. The district is now calling for an exemption for religious headwear, as it poses no advantage for the player.
