Trooper who guards governor accused of beating, kicking wife

HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) – A Pennsylvania state trooper on the team that guards the governor has been accused of beating his wife and threatening to kill her during an alcohol-fueled attack after she refused to have sex with him.

Police in Clearfield charged Trooper Terry Drew Jordan on Friday with aggravated assault, making terroristic threats and other crimes.

Charging documents say the 46-year-old member of Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf’s executive service section detail hit his wife in the head Thursday at their home and kicked her several times when she was on the ground.

The wife had to get medical treatment.

State police say Jordan is suspended without pay during the investigation.

Jordan is jailed while unable to post $1 million bail and can’t be reached for comment. There’s no defense lawyer listed for him in court records.
