PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — A suspended Providence police officer was in court Monday for a bail violation hearing.
A judge released Scott Logan to a treatment facility for a minimum for 30 days, according to his lawyer, John Lynch. He is expected back in court in about two weeks.
A state assessment concluded Logan is capable of standing trial.
As Target 12 first reported, Logan, who was already charged in two separate incidents, is also accused of threatening to kill his doctor via text message, because he wouldn’t give him prescription medication. Prosecutors maintain that incident was a violation of his bail.
