A Tamaqua man has been cited by police following several incidents on May 11.
Patrolman Joseph Krebs was in the area of Freddy's Pub, 14 Mauch Chunk Street, at 1:30 a.m. when he saw and heard a man leaving the bar, yelling and screaming at another man.
The screamer was identified as William G. Hill Jr., 31, of 105 Washington St. Hill told the officer he was defending his sister's name. He was told to go home and stay there.
Less than 30 minutes later Krebs was dispatched to the 100 block of Washington Street for a fight in progress. At the scene he found Hill, who was in the street, screaming and yelling at a neighbor. Again he said he was defending his sister's name.
All parties were told to go inside and stay there for the night as the next time an officer was called charges would be filed. Hill's mother took issue with that and threatened to call the mayor and state police.
At 2:26 a.m., Krebs was again dispatched to the Washington Street area where he observed Hill crossing the street, going back to his house. Hill was arrested and transported to the police station.
Hill was cited for disorderly conduct and public drunkenness.
