AVONMORE, Pa. —
An Avonmore man was arrested Sunday night after police said he punched a police officer in Allegheny Township.
Allegheny Township police Chief John Fontaine said several citizens called 911 when they saw two men rearranging traffic barriers along Route 56 in a work zone.
According to police, when officer arrived, Kory Clever did not cooperate. Police said he continued moving the barriers, yelled at officers and eventually punched one in the stomach.
Clever, 22, is facing two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer, a felony and other charges from the incident.
“He also was charged with terroristic threats because he threatened the officer and his family,” Fontaine said.
Clever is also charged with harassment, public drunkenness and disorderly conduct. He was in the county jail Monday in lieu of $50,000 bond pending a preliminary hearing.
The second man, Dennis Shaulis, 23, of Graceton, Indiana County, cooperated with police and is only facing a single summary public drunkenness charge, Fontaine said.
According to court records, Clever was on probation from another case.He pleaded guilty in April to a 2012 burglary and aggravated assault in Avonmore.
He was sentenced to serve up to seven months, with credit for time served, and ordered to serve two years of probation.
He has been separately sentenced for retail theft and receiving stolen property.
In July, Shaulis pleaded guilty to a theft charge from Indiana County. He was fined and placed on parole. He was released from parole on Aug. 19, court records show.
