Man jailed in fight with police at Pa. bookstore
GREENSBURG (AP) – A man was jailed on charges he fought with state troopers and tried to disarm them of their stun guns when they responded to a disturbance at a Western Pennsylvania bookstore.
Online court records don’t list an attorney for 38-year-old Michael Haugh, of Apollo, who was arrested Saturday evening.
That’s when troopers from the Greensburg barracks said they were called to the Barnes & Noble store on Route 30 in Hempfield Township, Westmoreland County.
Police said Haugh was wanted for making unspecified threats and fought with two troopers who tried to subdue him, grabbing for their stun guns in the process. Instead, both troopers stunned Haugh and arrested him, but not before about $500 damage was done to a store display.
Haugh faces a preliminary hearing Feb. 5.
