Westmoreland County assistant public defender arrested after incident at Seven Springs

SOMERSET COUNTY, Pa. — A Westmoreland County assistant public defender was arrested at Seven Springs and is accused of kicking a Pennsylvania state trooper.

According to our partners at TribLIVE.com, David Mulock, 36, was charged with aggravated assault on a law enforcement officer, disorderly conduct, public drunkenness, resisting arrest and other charges. Investigators said the incident happened at around 7:30 p.m. in a parking lot at the resort after Mulock left the Bavarian Bar.

Court documents said troopers were called because Mulock was reportedly screaming at security. Four troopers arrived and tried to arrest him for public drunkenness. Mulock allegedly told troopers they didn’t need to see his ID and repeatedly ignored their commands. State police then tried to take him into custody and put handcuffs on him at which point he fell to the ground and refused to get up. Documents said troopers had to carry Mulock to their patrol vehicle.

He was taken to the Somerset County Jail and appeared before a judge Thursday around noon.
