A homeless man already facing charges of public intoxication and assaulting a police officer allegedly threatened a judge during his bond hearing Thursday and had more charges filed against him in Myrtle Beach.

Edward Rosciszewski, 53, who is homeless but living in Myrtle Beach, was charged with threatening a public official, according to jail records.

Rosciszewski is being held at the Myrtle Beach Jail and his bond for the threatening charge was not set as of Friday morning.

About 10:30 a.m. Thursday during a bond hearing before Municipal Judge Scott Long, authorities learned that Rosciszewski wrote profanity directed toward the judge on his bond paperwork, according to police report.

The court agent said in the report that Rosciszewski told the judge “I will kill you…,” and then used profanity when the judge told him the bond set for his release, according to the police report.

Rosciszewski was given a $5,212 surety bond at his hearing in connection with charges of public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and resisting/assaulting a police officer, according to jail records.

Further details about those charges were not available on Friday morning.
