“Look at my bug.” That’s what 52-year-old Joseph R. Thomas, standing on his porch, uttered before tossing a spider on a police officer.

Thomas, who has been in jail for 390 days during the trial proceedings, was given a sentence of 30 months to five years in state prison on charges of aggravated assault, terroristic threats and resisting arrest.
