According to information from State Police in Frackville, troopers arrived at 18 N. William St. to serve an arrest warrant on Edward Brown, 59, of Guntown.

That’s when Troopers Tased Brown and were able to arrest him.

He was arraigned before District Judge James Reiley in Pottsville.

Brown faces 6 second-degree felony charges for aggravated assault, 4 counts of simple assault and charges of reckless endangerment, resisting arrest. He was sent to Schuylkill County Prison on $50,000 cash bail.
