Ada Firefighter Arrested a Second Time for Online Threats

Posted:

ADA, OK-- Authorities said social media comments have landed an Ada firefighter in jail for the second time.

The Pontotoc County Sheriff's office said Jason Smeltz was arrested yesterday after he continued to make threats to officer Brad Rhoades and a few other officers on Facebook.

Investigators said Smeltz was arrested back in April on the same charges after Rhoades arrested Smeltz wife on public intoxication charges.

Authorities said Smeltz pleaded with the officer not to arrest his wife and when the officer arrested her, Smeltz took his anger to Facebook.

Investigators said Smeltz posted a $25,000 bond.

The District Attorney has ordered Smeltz to refrain from making any comments on Facebook.
