William Marsh, 38, of Jeddo, was committed to the Carbon County Prison, Nesquehoning, on March 25 after an incident in Summit Hill.
Police Chief Joseph Fittos Jr. said Marsh was arraigned before District Justice Edward Lewis and comitted to jail in lieu of bail. He is charged with one count each of escape, trespass by motor vehicle and driving while operating privileges are suspended and two counts of persistent disorderly conduct.
Fittos said the incident happened when an officer observed a vehicle parked on the grassy area of South Market Street in the vicinity of the Ginter Field. As the cop approached the vehicle, Marsh exited it and was acting irrational and disorderly at the scene. Fittos said Marsh left the area and then returned to the scene where he continued to be disorderly. The police chief said the man continued to "act up" even during the entire time he was in custody.
