PSP troopers injured: St Thomas woman charged in assault
A St Thomas woman charged with assaulting two Pennsylvania State Police troopers last week is in Franklin County Jail this weekend.
Felecia Crawford Overcash, 18, faces felony charges in connection with the attack on the troopers; and misdemeanor charges in a separate case.
Police gave few details about the incident other than to say the two troopers had “moderate” injuries as a result of the assault. Times listed on a news release indicated it lasted for about 20 minutes between 8:20-8:40 p.m. on May 4.
Overcash was taken to Franklin County Jail following her arrest; where she remained as of late Friday afternoon, unable to post a $25,000 cash bail set by Magisterial District Judge Annie Gomez Shockey during her preliminary arraignment May 5.
A search of court records on Pennsylvania’s Unified Justem System shows Overcash charged with a misdemeanor for resisting arrest and three summary offenses including public drunkenness in a separate case the same day.
The PSP news release do not mentioned those charges. She is also awaiting trial on simple assault and harassment charges stemming from an unrelated arrest last January.
Charges related to the assault on the troopers include:
- Aggravated Assault – Attempts to cause or cause Serious Bodily Injury to designated individuals, five counts, all first degree felonies
Charges listed in the second case filed May 5:
- Resisting Arrest, a second degree misdemeanor
- Public Drunkenness And Similar Misconduct, a summary offense;
- Purchase of Alcoholic Beverage By A Minor, a summary offense;
- Disorderly Conduct Hazardous/Physical Offense, a summary offense
Overcash’s preliminary hearing in the May cases is set for tomorrow in Franklin County’s Magisterial District Central Court.
