Man Facing Assault Charges After Fight with Police, EMTs
Police officers had to use a stun gun on a man, who then began to physically fight officers and EMTs. Tullytown police were escorting the man.
After getting kicked off a train in at the statio in Tullytown, a 42-year-old New Jersey man assaulted local EMTs and police officers, resulting in a slew of charges and officers using a stun gun on him.
Tuesday, Dec. 18, Lower Southampton Police received a call from the Tullytown Police for officers and the Tri-Hampton Rescue Squad to meet them at Suburban Diner in Feasterville where the man was passed out.
Tullytown officers had transported the man to the diner after he got kicked off of a train to be picked up there by his mother.
When in the back of the ambulance, EMTs saw a pill container in the man's back pocket and when they tried to take it, the man assaulted them. He got off of the gurney in a struggle to get the pills back. At that time, officers had to use a dry stun gun on him to get him to comply with orders. The subject then got back on the gurney.
The subject became aggressive and began to argue that they could not take his medication. He once again became combative and tried to get the pills back. Officers had to use the stun gun on the man again in an attempt to control him.
The man would not comply with police and then began to resist and physically fight with officers and EMTs.
When officers finally handcuffed the subject and put him in a patrol vehicle, the man kept repeatedly banging his head against the side of the vehicle and began threatening to kill the officers.
The subject was charged with aggravated assault and related charges. He was arraigned and sent to Bucks County Prison in lieu of $150,000 bail.
