Carlisle, PA

On September 6, 2019, just after 9AM, Carlisle Police Department, was dispatched to the 100 block of West North Street, for a report of a domestic incident.

Upon arrival officers were met by the homeowner who told police Isaiah Washington IV had poured gasoline on the back porch of the home threatening to light it on fire.

Officers arrested Washington, for attempted arson and other related offenses. Washington was transported to Cumberland County Prison for processing and arraignment.  Washington was released on $9,000 unsecured bond.

This is Washington’s 20th criminal case in Pennsylvania. He is also on bond for a drug paraphernalia case which the District Attorney offered an Accelerated Rehabilitation Disposition that would see that case dismissed if Washington completed a term of probation and other conditions.
