Joseph Anthony Pacini, who threatened cops on Youtube, shot by police after trying to kill officer
Joseph Anthony Pacini, 52, was shot to death by the police after he allegedly tried to run over an officer in Pennsylvania on Tuesday.
It all began when Pacini allegedly openly made terroristic threats against law enforcement at an LA Fitness gym last Sunday. Gym staff called Haverford police to report the threats, and a Haverford police detective called Pacini and asked him to come to the police station.
Pacini refused to comply with the request from the police. Instead, he recorded and uploaded three videos of himself making threats against the police in two days.
“So, you wanna try to bring me down? I will f**king kill you, and your f**king family alright? So go ahead and f**k with me alright?” he said in his first video.
Police and a regional SWAT team then went to Pacini’s house in Clifton Heights to serve a warrant. When they got there, Pacini drove away from his home. They followed, and Pacini’s Nissan Maxima was eventually stopped by Clifton Heights, Upper Darby and Haverford police officers at Garrett Road and Shadeland Avenue in Drexel Hill.
As officers ordered Pacini to get out of the car. He allegedly put his car in reverse and hit the vehicle of the Cliftons Height Police chief. Five officers drew their guns and opened fire on Pacini. He died at the scene.
According to Upper Darby Police Superintendent Michael Chitwood, Pacini was not armed and may have had mental health issues.
