PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — A man has been charged with threatening a police officer wounded during a home invasion in Clairton.

Irving Glaze, 43, confronted paralyzed Clairton police officer James Kuzak Monday on Fifth Avenue in Downtown outside the courthouse.

That’s when police say Glaze asked Kuzak, “What would you do if I threw you out of that chair?”

He also allegedly yelled at Officer Kuzak, “You did those boys wrong!”

Glaze was at the courthouse for an unrelated matter, and according the Allegheny County Sheriff’s Department, he caused a disturbance when he appeared in Criminal Court.

He got into a scuffle with sheriff’s deputies and they used a taser on him.

Glaze is now facing a list of charges from both incidents, including simple assault, terroristic threats, harassment, aggravated assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
