Criminal charges filed:
lJustin Edward Greene, 33, St. Marys.
Charged with resisting arrest, a second degree misdemeanor; disorderly conduct, a third degree misdemeanor; and public drunkenness and similar misconduct, a summary offense, at 11:50 p.m. on Aug. 12 in Monroe Township.
At approximately 11:45 p.m., state police from Clarion began receiving reports of a male wearing a black tank top and blue jeans running in traffic on State Route 68 at Perkins Road in Monroe Township.
The suspect was reportedly pulling on car handles and jumping on vehicles. He was said to be screaming loudly and acting erratically. One complainant reported the suspect was laying in the drainage ditch along State Route 68.
Upon arrival to the scene at 11:50 p.m. state police Cpl. Marc S. Hunsberger observed a male who matched the description provided by the complainants. He was soaking wet despite the dry weather conditions. The suspect was also covered in mud.
Hunsberger approached the individual and asked him what was wrong.
The suspect, identified as Justin Edward Greene, looked at Hunsberger as if he was confused. Greene was unresponsive to Hunsberger's questioning but allegedly kept shouting, "Save me Jesus."
Hunsberger advised Greene to place his hands behind his back and retrieved his handcuffs to place Green in custody. Greene pulled his arm from Hunsberger's grasp and began walking backwards away from Hunsberger.
Hunsberger advised Greene he was under arrest and told him he needed to place his hands behind his back multiple times. Greene then allegedly began to state, "It's you, Jesus Christ," directed toward Hunsberger.
Greene remained unresponsive to verbal commands to place his hands behind his back and to turn around. Hunsberger advised Greene he would be tasered if he did not comply.
Despite several warnings that a taser would be deployed for failure to comply, Greene remained resistant. A taser was deployed, and Greene was taken into custody without further incident.
Greene allegedly related he recently consumed methamphetamine and buprenorphine.
The statement by Greene coincided with Hunsberger's observations of indicators displayed by Greene consistent with CNS Stimulant and Narcotic Analgesic ingestion.
