Court Documents: Broken Toilet Leads to Threat With Ax, Gun at Toledo Trailer Park

By The Chronicle

A Toledo man was arrested over the weekend on a felony harassment charge after allegedly threatening the managers of his trailer park over a broken toilet.

Paul A. Komara, 48, of Toledo, was charged Monday with harassment, threat to kill, in Lewis County Superior Court.

Superior Court Judge Joely O’Rourke ordered Komara held on $10,000 bail in accordance with a request from the Lewis County Prosecutor’s Office. 

Komara pleaded for his release, saying he had upcoming medical appointments for “stage-four liver cancer,” and hip replacement surgery. 

O’Rourke said she would consider a medical furlough if Komara could present proof of his appointments. 

According to court documents and the Lewis County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to a report of a threat with a firearm at 8:49 p.m. Friday in the 100 block of Cowlitz Loop Road in Toledo. 

Komara was arrested as he attempted to leave, according to court documents. 

The alleged victims, a 56-year-old woman and a 48-year-old man, told deputies a dispute began among the three people because a toilet at Komara’s residence at the park was broken and hadn’t been fixed. 

They reported that Komara threatened them while holding an ax and that he also threatened to shoot a witness to the dispute.

He also allegedly pushed the male victim, according to the sheriff’s office. 

Komara’s next court appearance is scheduled for Thursday.
