A Pottsville man will be in court Monday morning to face charges related to an incident that happened in the city last Saturday evening.

According to Pottsville Police, 46-year-old Todd Schultz hit a 50-year-old Pottsville man with his ATV outside the Buck Fever Gun Club, on Ravine St., on Aug. 8, just after 7 p.m.

Schultz then got off his ATV and began pummeling the man he hit, “violently kicking and punching him in the head and rib area,” according to information made public by Pottsville PD.

The injured man was flown to a nearby trauma center. Police have not released his name.

Schultz wasn’t finished fighting though. Police say he also attacked a witness to the first incident, a 52-year-old man, no identity or address given, who tried to break up the initial attack. That victim was taken to a local hospital and treated for his injuries.

Police obtained an arrest warrant for Schultz, who dashed from the scene before police arrived.

According to court records, Schultz was brought in by police the next day. He posted $2,500 cash bail on Aug. 11. He’s due in court before District Judge James Reiley on Monday, Aug. 17, at 10 a.m.

Schultz faces two felony charges for aggravated assault and one misdemeanor charge of simple assault.
