On 08/25/18 at 0040 hrs. Officers responded to the South Center Street area for a radio call that an officer was in foot pursuit. A short time later, officers had one male (Ty Hallock) in custody. Hallock was then escorted to a patrol car parked on South Center Street. He continued to be irate causing Officers to tell him to calm down and to stop yelling many times. He refused.
On arrival at a patrol car, Officer Strawcutter attempted to place him in a patrol car. Hallock then spit directly into Officer Strawcutter's face and mouth. He then began to attempt to kick Officer Strawcutter. Officer's had to then physically restrain Hallock while he remained combative and began kicking. Hallock then continued to resist, struggle and kick. During this time Hallock was told many times to stop resisting but he refused and continued to be aggressive towards officers. Once officers were finally able to stop the aggression, a spit mask was placed over Hallock's face. Hallock was subsequently transported to BPD.
On arrival at the City of Bradford Police Department Hallock it was learned that Hallock was overdosing on Mucinex. There he advised he was "tripping" and did not know what he was doing. EMS was then called and Hallock was transported to BRMC for evaluation.
Officer Strawcutter did also receive treatment at BRMC for the bodily fluid exposure.
Hallock had a McKean County Bench Warrant for his arrest, causing the foot pursuit.
