STROUDSBURG, Pa. - A Slate Belt man is facing assault charges for allegedly tangling with Monroe County sheriff's deputies after having his bail revoked.
The Monroe County District Attorney's Office charged Darrin A. Sanderson with aggravated assault, terroristic threats, simple assault, resisting arrest, disorderly conduct, criminal mischief and institutional vandalism.
Investigators allege that Sanderson intentionally threw himself against a wall outside courtroom 1 in the Monroe County Courthouse, while being escorted to a holding area by county sheriff's deputies, according to a news release issued Thursday by the district attorney's office.
A judge had just revoked the 26-year-old's bail in a previous criminal case. Deputies sustained injuries, but managed to get Sanderson under control and transfer him to a holding area.
The news release does not specify when the incident occurred or the nature of Sanderson's other outstanding criminal matter.
Sanderson will be later scheduled for a preliminary hearing before District Judge Kristina Anzini.
