A man threatened Indiana Township police because he said he was upset that his mother was being hospitalized for mental evaluation, police said.
Douglas C. Biehl, 49, is accused of attempted assault with a vehicle, aggravated assault and 14 other charges.
According to police, Biehl objected on Sunday night when police started to take his mother to a hospital. The request was made by her husband, who told police that she has dementia, hit him with a shoe and scratched his face.
Following a confrontation at the police station, Biehl was arrested at the family's Eisele Road residence.
