Ashland Police Subdue Man Acting Aggressively in Traffic

Last weekend, Ashland Police had to subdue a man acting aggressive and belligerent in traffic.

According to Ashland Police, on July 15th, 2018, around 1:20PM, police were notified of a male walking in the middle of the street, in the area of 21st Street and Centre Street, bleeding from a head wound.

Police say the male, later identified as Michael Boblick, 36, of Locust Gap,  was attempting to stop traffic and was acting aggressively.

Officer Daniel Weikel responded and found Boblick in the area of 25th Street and Centre Street walking in the middle of the road.

Upon being stopped by Officer Weikel, Boblick was extremely belligerent and aggressive.  Police immediately called Butler Township Police for assistance.

Prior to Butler Township's arrival, Officer Weikel had to subdue Boblick by use of a Taser Device due to his erratic and violent behavior.

Boblick was secured until Butler Township's arrival with the help of an off-duty Pennsylvania State Trooper that was in the area.

Boblick was charged with Resisting arrest, 2 counts of misdemeanor disorderly conduct and obstructing highways.  He was arraigned by on-call Magisterial District Judge Christina Hale and locked up in Schuylkill County Prison in Lieu of $5,000 straight cash bail.  Boblick later posted bail on July 20, 2018.
