Ebensburg, PA (AP) Police say a Pennsylvania man who became angry when told there were no outstanding warrants for his arrest has been jailed.
Cambria Township police say 40-year-old Mervin Sollenberger arrived at the Cambria County jail late Tuesday to surrender on outstanding arrest warrants. But police told him there were no warrants for his arrest.
WJAC-TV reports that’s when the Duncansville man became enraged, threatening to assault the jail’s guards and kicking a steel cage door at the lockup.
Sollenberger has been charged with making terroristic threats and disorderly conduct. He remained jailed Thursday after failing to post 10 percent of his $20,000 bail.
Online court records don’t list an attorney for Sollenberger. He faces a preliminary hearing Nov. 8.
