Canton Man Due to be Sentenced, Now Facing New Accusations

Matthew Slatzer (Stark County jail)

CANTON, Ohio (News Talk 1480 WHBC) – Sentencing for a 36-year-old man who was arrested on a federal gun charge at a Canton bar has been delayed.

The Repository says that’s because Matthew Slatzer of Canton has been making threats aimed at police while incarcerated.

He’s been convicted on a federal gun count.

Officers found a weapon on him at the Fast Times Pub back in February.

He’s not permitted to have a gun out of a previous conviction.

Slatzer also made news with his reported anti-Semitic sign at a Columbus protest earlier this year
