A veteran state police trooper from the Belle Vernon barracks was placed on unpaid leave Wednesday after he was accused of pushing a woman down a flight of stairs during a domestic dispute in Sutersville, state police said.
Trooper Paul C. Mauser, 38, of Donora, was charged with a felony count of aggravated assault, misdemeanor counts of simple assault and terroristic threats, and a summary count of harassment stemming from an argument that escalated into a confrontation at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Cpl. Michael L. McElfresh said in a news release.
The woman, whose identity was not revealed by police, had to seek medical treatment for an injury to her ankle. Police did not indicate where the alleged altercation occurred in Sutersville or how Mauser knew the woman.
Mauser was arraigned before West Newton District Judge Charles Christner and released after posting $5,000 bond. The trooper faces a preliminary hearing on March 4 before Christner.
Mauser has been a state police trooper for 13 years, said Maria A. Finn, a state police spokeswoman in Harrisburg.
