Thorpe resident jailed on charges
A Jim Thorpe resident was jailed on several charges following an incident in the borough.
Borough police said about 2:40 a.m. on March 6 they were dispatched to W. Sixth Street for a fight in progress. On scene they found Charles W. Wiley, 28, of 10 W. Sixth St., lying on the ground. Police said he was manifestly under the influence of alcohol.
While there Wiley's girlfriend, identified as Laura C. Simmons, exited the suspects' house with their 5-year-old daughter and said she was leaving. At this point Wiley stood up and chased after Simmons.
Despite warnings by police to stop, Wiley ignored the officer and later prevented Simmons from leaving in a vehicle with a friend.
When police attempted to place him under arrest he began to fight with the officer, who had to physically subdue him.
Wiley was taken into custody and charged with resisting arrest, persistent disorderly conduct (two counts), and public drunkenness. He was arraigned before on-call District Judge Casimir Kosciolek, of Lansford, and committed to the county prison after failing to post $3,000 straight cash bail.
