According to court documents, DuBois-based State Police filed criminal charges against 40-year-old Allen D. Marshall, Jr., of Reynoldsville.

According to a criminal complaint, around 11:26 p.m. on November 8, DuBois State Police were dispatched to speak with a female victim who stated that she had been drinking at a local bar and left to walk home. Allen Marshall told her that he was going to give her a ride home.

The complaint states that the victim refused at first, but then she agreed to get into the vehicle with him. An argument started in the vehicle, and she got out her phone and attempted to make a phone call. Marshall allegedly grabbed her phone and threw it out the window. The victim told Marshall to let her out. Then, he allegedly took her purse and threw it out and struck her in the face.

The victim tried to exit the vehicle, and Marshall allegedly struck her again, and she fell out of the vehicle onto her back, striking the back of her head. She then got up and walked to a nearby friend’s residence.

According to the complaint, around 1:50 a.m. on November 9, DuBois State Police arrived at Marshall’s residence. Officers were told that “Marshall was in the basement, but he would not come up. Police went into the basement and identified themselves to Marshall. He then threw a shampoo bottle that struck one of the officers in the head and then refused to get off the couch on which he was lying.”

The complaint states that “Marshall pulled away from the officers as they were taking him into custody. He rolled from the couch onto the floor where he began to thrash around with his arms and legs and actively refused to place his hands behind his back. Marshall then placed his hands under his person and refused to place them behind his back as instructed.”

Based on the investigation, a criminal complaint was filed against Marshall in District Judge David B. Inzana’s office.

Marshall was arraigned at 10:30 a.m. on November 9 on the following charges:

  • Simple Assault, Misdemeanor 2
  • Resist Arrest/Other Law Enforce, Misdemeanor 2
  • Criminal Mischief – Tamper With Property, Misdemeanor 3
  • Harassment – Subject Other to Physical Contact, Summary (two counts)

Unable to post $20,000.00 monetary bail, he was lodged in the Jefferson County Jail.

A preliminary hearing is scheduled for 9:00 a.m. on November 17 with Judge Inzana presiding.
