Somerset County District Attorney in trouble again, accused of harassment

SOMERSET COUNTY, Pa. — The embattled Somerset County District Attorney is finding himself in hot water again, just a few days after he spent a night in jail.

Jeffrey Thomas was charged in a separate assault case earlier this week where he is accused of punching a woman multiple times while a witness watched over a FaceTime phone call.

On Wednesday, Thomas was slapped with multiple citations involving a late-night incident on the roads a few weeks ago.

Windber Police cited Thomas with harassment and reckless driving after they said he chased another driver down multiple streets in Windber Borough just after 12:01 a.m. on a Thursday in late March.

Police said Thomas’ pickup truck purposely struck the other driver’s vehicle.

The citations are summary offenses and will be sent to Thomas by mail.

Thomas posted bond Tuesday and was released from the Cambria County Jail after the assault case filed this week that stemmed from last May.

Thomas was initially charged last year with allegedly sexually assaulting a woman inside her Windber home. He is expected to go to trial for that case in the fall.

After these latest citations and accusations, the Attorney General’s office is handling the prosecution for all of the cases against Thomas.

On April 28, Attorney General Josh Shapiro filed a motion to revoke Thomas’ bail in light of the new charges.
