A 30 year-old Alpena man is headed back to prison and he isn’t happy about it or afraid to let the judge know how he feels.

Joshua Curtis Worthington received 24 months to 4 years Monday, for resisting and obstructing a police officer, which was enhanced by his habitual 4th offender status.

Prior to sentencing, prosecutor Ed Black asked Judge Michael Mack to place Worthington in prison, noting that he had previously been convicted of resisting and obstructing three times. Black also reminded the court that during the most recent incident, Worthington injured a city police officer who needed to take time off to recover.

Due to Worthington’s criminal history, Mack sentenced him on the high end of the guidelines. That instantly enraged Worthington who used profanity and cursed at Mack. He was immediately escorted out of the courtroom by one of the bailiffs.

Worthington is currently on parole for a malicious destruction of property conviction out of Livingston County.
