State Police Respond to Suicidal Male on Interstate 81 near Frackville

Earlier this week, the Pennsylvania State Police at Frackville responded to a suicidal male along Interstate 81.

According to Troopers, on Monday, November 14th, 2022, around 2:30pm, multiple State Police units responded to Interstate 81 near mile marker 124 in Ryan Township, near Frackville, for a report of a suicidal male standing on an overpass, then darting out in front of traffic.

When police approached, he refused to comply with commands.

The male ran in and out of oncoming traffic and eventually slipped and fell and was detained by Troopers.  While being detained, the male continued to resist.

Once calmed down, the male told troopers he was severely depressed about a relationship, he was also found to be in possession of methamphetamine.

The male was committed for a mental health evaluation and charged with disorderly conduct, resisting arrest, and drug related charges.
