DAUPHIN COUNTY, Pa. (WHTM)– A Pennsylvania State Trooper faces multiple charges after being accused of trying to wrongfully serve a woman he knew with an Involuntary Mental Health Commitment, court documents show.
Ronald Davis, 37, of Williamstown, is accused of trying to convince fellow Troopers that the woman was threatening to harm herself, State Police in Lykens said.
In August, State Police said, Davis received the Involuntary Mental Health Commitment after he went to the station and was told to contact Dauphin County Crisis Intervention. Although he was contacting them for a personal reason, Davis allegedly told the crisis team he was a Trooper and used his work email to submit the form.
Mug shot of Ronald Davis via Dauphin County DA State Police say they closed in on the woman’s location in Weiser State Forest when Davis said he found her after getting approval for the commitment form.
State Police say an eyewitness recording showed Davis assaulted the woman as he was trying to restrain her. A State Police report says the woman claimed that she couldn’t breathe numerous times while being restrained by Davis and that she was thrown to the ground when she tried to get away from Davis.
Davis, State Police said, did not ever state he was acting as a State Police Trooper or identify himself as one when restraining the woman. The woman did not understand why she was being arrested and appeared confused when Troopers were trying to tell her about the mental health commitment process, according to court records.

TLANTA - The family of a 62-year-old man killed while in the custody of Atlanta Police wants the officer who used a Taser on him arrested.
The family of Johnny Holloman finally viewed the body cam video, which shows the church deacon in APD custody during the last few minutes of his life.
The family says after viewing the video, they now know Mr. Hollomon did not resist arrest, but rather asked for a supervisor and begged for his life. The family openly wept and declined to comment on what they saw.
"This was… as long as I have been doing this… the most senseless arrest I have ever seen. He was killed over a ticket," attorney Mawuli Davis said, as he fought back tears.
Hollomon’s family was in disbelief after watching the 62-year-old church deacon take his last breath while in police custody.
Mr. Hollomon was heading home from bible study Aug. 10 when police say he was involved in a minor traffic accident.
An officer decided Hollomon was at fault and proceeded to arrest him at the intersection of Cunningham Place and Joseph Lowery Boulevard. That is when police say Hollomon resisted arrest and an officer used a Taser on him.
His family says the officer’s body cam video showed the 62-year-old unarmed man did nothing wrong.
"All he did was disagree with the officer on the accident. As he reaches out to sign the ticket, the officer grabs him by the arm, and he begins to put him into custody. He took him to the ground, and you can hear Mr. Hollomon begging for him to stop. He says, ‘I can’t breathe, please help me,’" attorney Davis recalls.

The 2-year-old boy found last month in an alligator’s mouth in a St. Petersburg, Florida, lake died of drowning, police say.
Taylen Mosley was reported missing on March 30 after his mother, Pashun Jeffery, 20, was found dead in her apartment with multiple stab wounds. The boy was put in the lake by his father, who is charged in both deaths, according to a St. Petersburg police affidavit.
Taylen was found March 31 in the mouth of an alligator in Lake Maggiore.
The Pinellas County medical examiner confirmed Monday that the cause of death was drowning, St. Petersburg police told CNN.
St. Petersburg Police The toddler’s father, Thomas Mosley, 21, is facing two counts of first-degree murder. He is booked in the Pinellas County Jail, according to county records.
A spokesperson for the public defender said the office has not received the full autopsy report but is evaluating all information provided in the case.
Earlier this month, a spokesperson for Sixth Judicial Circuit Public Defender Sara Mollo said: “Due to the extremely serious allegations surrounding these tragic losses, our investigation is currently focused on gathering information about the facts and circumstances of the case, as well as our client’s mental state.”
Mosley allegedly “did throw or place” Taylen into a lake, inflicting “mortal wounds” that caused the child’s death, according to the affidavit.
The night before Jeffery was found, Mosley allegedly went to his mother’s house with “severe lacerations to both of his hands and arms consistent with injuries caused by slippage during a knife attack” and was admitted to a hospital, according to the affidavit.
Taylen Mosley's body was found dead in an alligators mouth Friday after he was reported missing when his mother was found dead in a nearby apartment. A Florida toddler found in an alligator's mouth was put in the lake by his father, police say Jeffery’s family went to check on her and allegedly saw blood on the sidewalk from her apartment, the affidavit said. They found Jeffery inside with “apparent cuts and stabs in excess of 100 wounds,” according to the affidavit.
“A bloody fingerprint on a cleaning bottle which had been intentionally placed under a bed in the crime scene was identified to (Mosley),” the affidavit said. “A bloody shoe print with a ‘Gucci’ emblem was located on the bathroom floor where the victim was found,” the affidavit continues.
Taylen was not at the crime scene and authorities launched a search for the boy.
The following day, an alligator was spotted in Dell Holmes Park just miles away from where Jeffery was found dead, with an object in its mouth, police said. Officers fired a single round at the reptile and it dropped the object.
Officers were able to retrieve what they discovered to be Taylen’s body, which was intact, according to police. The alligator was euthanized, the affidavit added.

Alright, funky cats and groovy chicks, let's boogie on down to a far-out discussion about the 1970s slang and vibe!
The '70s were a heavy time for change, and the language reflected that. Folks were looking for new ways to express themselves, and slang was a righteous way to do it.
Some of the most popular slang terms from the '70s include:
Groovy: cool, stylish, or hip
Funky: stylish, soulful, or exciting
Heavy: serious, important, or impressive
Kewl: cool or good
Rad: excellent, amazing, or exciting
Boss: excellent or impressive
Far out: amazing, exciting, or strange
Space cadet: someone who is ditzy or out of touch with reality
Freak: a person who is unusual or unconventional
Dig it: understand or appreciate something
Right on: correct, accurate, or agreeable
Peace: a farewell greeting
These terms were used to describe everything from threads to digs to the latest beats. For example, you might say that your new outfit was "groovy" or that your favorite band was "funky." You might also say that a political speech was "heavy" or that a new scientific discovery was "far out."
But slang wasn't just about individual words and phrases. It was also about the overall vibe of the language. The '70s were a time of great creativity and experimentation, and that was reflected in the way people talked. Folks were more likely to use colorful language and to express themselves in unique ways.
For example, instead of saying "I'm having a good time," you might say "I'm having a ball" or "I'm groovin'." Instead of saying "That's cool," you might say "That's righteous" or "That's far out."
The '70s were also a time of great optimism and hope. Folks were excited about the future and about the possibilities that it held. That optimism was reflected in the language, which was often full of positive words and phrases like "peace," "love," and "unity."
So next time you're feeling funky and groovy, don't be afraid to use some '70s slang. It's a boss way to add some spice to your conversation and to show that you're down with the times.
Peace out, dudes and dudettes!

The incident happened on the city's east side at State Fair near Gratiot where video shows multiple officers from DPD's 9th Precinct attempt to arrest the 34-year-old man.
The Facebook video was shared by the user De'trey Jackson who wrote: "He locked his keys in the car and was trying to get his keys out the car with a hanger the police pull up in this happen."
Officers put handcuffs on him, and he pulls them off, while bystanders gather around shouting at the police.
The struggle continued to escalate as more officers joined in trying to subdue the man. Some bystanders then began trying to hold back some of the officers and grappling ensues.
At one point in the video, one officer can be seen drawing a gun and pointing it at the crowd of people.
Detroit police released a statement about the incident:
"The Department is in possession of video depicting several officers using force to effect the arrest of an individual on the east side of Detroit. This matter has been referred to the Department's Professional Standards Bureau for further investigation into the facts and circumstances of the incident, including the reason for the initial stop, the tactics employed by the officers, and the reasonableness of the force used.
