Toronto Man Arrested for Punching Pennsylvania State Trooper

NEWS STAFF | posted Tuesday, Jul 18th, 2017

A Toronto man has been arrested in western Pennsylvania after allegedly punching a state trooper.

A Pittsburgh-based paper reports that 31-year-old Patrick Conrad Rokowski had been intentionally bumping into patrons and flipping tables at a service centre off the Pennsylvania turnpike on Wednesday morning when he was confronted by police.

It was at that point that the state troopers say Rokowski shoved, punched and gouged the eyes of a 46-year-old officer, leaving him with minor injuries.

Rokowski was taken into custody and now faces charges of aggravated assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.
