Charges were filed against an Everson man who became difficult with police and resisted arrest after he was pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Troy Allen Klepsky, 27, of 301 Brown St. was charged with aggravated assault, two counts of resisting arrest, two counts of DUI, fail to keep right, driving at safe speeds and three counts of disorderly conduct at District Judge Charles Moore's office.

The charges stem from an incident at 3:23 a.m. Jan. 26 when a Scottdale police officer saw a vehicle back out of the Scottdale Sheetz parking lot onto South Broadway.

The vehicle, driven by Klepsky, revved its engine and spun its tire on the snow-covered road, which caused the officer to follow, according to the affidavit of probable cause. The officer noticed the vehicle traveling through town at unsafe speeds and conducted a traffic stop.

Klepsky told the officer he had a “few beers” and was visiting a friend, but the officer noticed Klepsky's eyes were dilated, his speech slurred and he had an odor of alcohol, according to the complaint.

The officer conducted a sobriety test, which Klepsky failed. Klepsky was taken to Excela Frick Hospital in Mt. Pleasant for chemical testing.

At the hospital, Klepsky was unruly, used profanities and made a motion as if to run. The officer told him to stay seated and that he was facing more charges for his actions.

“He (Klepsky) said ‘so, I already tasered myself,'” according to the affidavit.

When escorted back to the police station, Klepsky continued to be unruly and rushed the officer, hitting the officer's upper torso. The officer wrestled Klepsky to the ground and removed a small glass container he said was chap-stick, but held several pills. He then signed the department property record as “Daffy Duck” and was released to relatives, according to the complaint.

A preliminary hearing was scheduled for 10:15 a.m. March 6.
