Bradford Man Arrested For Assaulting Police Officer

On 08/25/18 at 0040 hrs. Officers responded to the South Center Street area for a radio call that an officer was in foot pursuit. A short time later, officers had one male (Ty Hallock) in custody. Hallock was then escorted to a patrol car parked on South Center Street. He continued to be irate causing Officers to tell him to calm down and to stop yelling many times. He refused.

On arrival at a patrol car, Officer Strawcutter attempted to place him in a patrol car. Hallock then spit directly into Officer Strawcutter's face and mouth. He then began to attempt to kick Officer Strawcutter. Officer's had to then physically restrain Hallock while he remained combative and began kicking. Hallock then continued to resist, struggle and kick. During this time Hallock was told many times to stop resisting but he refused and continued to be aggressive towards officers. Once officers were finally able to stop the aggression, a spit mask was placed over Hallock's face. Hallock was subsequently transported to BPD.

On arrival at the City of Bradford Police Department Hallock it was learned that Hallock was overdosing on Mucinex. There he advised he was "tripping" and did not know what he was doing. EMS was then called and Hallock was transported to BRMC for evaluation.

Officer Strawcutter did also receive treatment at BRMC for the bodily fluid exposure.

Hallock had a McKean County Bench Warrant for his arrest, causing the foot pursuit.

Short film showing the plight of the ruffed grouse in Pennsylvania wins seven awards.

Between 2001 and 2005, the ruffed grouse population suffered a 63 percent decline in Pennsylvania. No one was sure why but in 2015 through 2016, Game Commission biologist Lisa Williams and her team confirmed their suspicions about Pennsylvania’s state bird being affected by the West Nile Virus (WNV).

Grouse chicks were hatched from eggs gathered in the wild, and then inoculated with WNV. Within the first week 40 percent of the chicks died. After two weeks, an additional 40 percent of the chicks showed so much organ damage that they probably could not have survived in their natural environment.

After the challenge study was completed, the laboratory findings were then tested on wild grouse in Pennsylvania by looking for WNV-positive antibodies in harvested grouse. This testing is the first of its kind where lab results were then tested in wild populations.

Williams rallied hundreds of hunters across the state to send in blood samples when they harvested a grouse during the hunting season. Game Commission pathologist Justin Brown and their research partners at Colorado State University and the University of Guelph then did the careful lab work to assess WNV exposure in wild grouse. By incorporating these findings into habitat management planning, the Game Commission and partners hope to direct habitat management efforts to areas where grouse populations have the best chance of responding.

Williams’ research then caught the ear of one of the Game Commission staff filmmakers.

Game Commission filmmaker Tracy Graziano, armed with her Canon C500 and Final Cut X editing program, set out to tell Williams’ story that continues to unfold even today. Graziano completed the 9-minute documentary in late January 2017 after 18 months of shooting and countless hours in the field. She has been with the agency for eight years but has been creating science and wildlife documentaries since 1999.

“The most rewarding thing I can hope for in any of my film projects is to help influence change for the benefit of wildlife and conservation,” said Graziano.

“With more than 27,000 YouTube views to date, I believe the ‘Ruffed Grouse’ film was critically important in raising awareness among hunters about the risk of WNV to grouse and is one of the reasons other state wildlife agencies started looking into WNV as a contributing cause of decreasing grouse populations,” Lisa Williams said.

Game Commission Executive Director Bryan Burhans concurs.

“Lisa Williams’ research into the ruffed grouse population decline in Pennsylvania is cutting-edge science-based wildlife management,” Burhans said. “Documenting these important findings by using the latest technology by skilled filmmaker Tracy Graziano so others can learn and benefit exemplifies why the Pennsylvania Game Commission is at the forefront in modern wildlife management.”

“Ruffed Grouse” won awards from the following:

· The University of Idaho Fish & Wildlife Film Festival 2017, Idaho, “Natural History Documentary-Short” category

· American Conservation Film Festival 2017, West Virginia, Official Selection “Conservation Film Short” category

· Wildlife Conservation Film Festival 2017, New York, Official Selection “Wildlife Conservation” category

· FIIN 2017, Portugal, Official Selection “Films of Nature” category

· NatureTrack Film Festival 2018, California, Official Selection “Conservation” category

· Outdoor Film Festival 2018, Utah, Official Selection “Categories by Species”

This past July, the “Ruffed Grouse” film was recognized with its most recent award at the Association for Conservation Information (ACI) conference in Springfield, Missouri. The film took third place in the 2018 “Video Long” category.

ACI is a professional organization that recognizes excellence in educational work completed by state and federal fish and wildlife agencies across North America.

McKean County DA/Police Advise Sex Abuse Victims To Come Forward

Joint Statement of McKean County District Attorney Stephanie Vettenburg-Shaffer and Bradford Township Police Chief Robert Shipman

As every other Pennsylvanian who has reviewed the report regarding sex abuse in the diocese in our state, we are concerned about the allegations and share in the frustration that has been universally expressed over the restriction on prosecution in most cases due to the statute of limitations. However, we cannot know what options may still exist until a report is made to the police.

It is important that any victim of sexual abuse know that an investigation will be done if the matter is reported to law-enforcement.

It is likely that the majority of sexual abuse victims do not report the crime. However, for those who desire to have their case investigated, we are concerned that there may be confusion over investigative options. Each case is different depending not only in the facts but on the length of time that has passed and the age of the victim.

It is likely true that many such crimes cannot be prosecuted due to the length of time that has passed since the crime occurred due to the length of time in which crimes can be charged under existing law. However, to avoid any potential prosecutable case from falling through the cracks we encourage any victim to contact the police agency in the jurisdiction in which the crime occurred to begin an investigation. Each case will be reviewed individually. We encourage any victim to come forward in the hopes that justice can be realized.
