Suspended Providence officer found competent to stand trial


A suspended Providence police officer has been found competent to stand trial on charges of carrying an illegal gun and threatening three superior officers and his doctor.

Police charged 45-year-old Scott Logan, of Johnston, with cyber-stalking and disorderly conduct. He was indicted in August on accusations he had a gun with an altered serial number and then sent a text message threatening three superior officers before subsequently sending threatening texts to his doctor.

Logan was ordered to undergo a mental health and substance abuse evaluation last week after his third felony arrest in three months.

Logan has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges.

His attorney tells WPRI-TV he cannot comment about the pending cases. Logan is expected back in court on Oct. 22.
