NEW CASTLE — An Edinburg man has been charged with assaulting a police officer.

Michael D. Wymer, 48, of 4487 W. State St., is charged with aggravated and simple assault, resisting arrest and disorderly conduct.

Mahoning Township police, called for a domestic disturbance about 10 p.m. Friday, said they encountered Wymer at his home and he appeared to be intoxicated and was yelling.

Officers said Wymer was asked to step outside and stop yelling but he refused and walked away.

The officer said he took Wymer’s arm but was pushed away. Police said Wymer continued to be uncooperative and the officer deployed his Taser.

Police noted Wymer had an injury to his face and summoned an ambulance to the Mahoning Township police department to evaluate him. They said the ambulance crew cleared him.

On Wednesday, the House of Representatives voted to authorize Speaker John Boehner to sue President Obama for allegedly overstepping his legal authority with the way he's handled Obamacare. Good call?

Yes. Obama's been overstepping his authority since day one in office. It's time he pay the piper.
No. The allegations are ridiculous and the law suit is a waste of time and tax payer money.
I don't know. I'm not a huge fan of Obama, but the suit seems a little extreme.
