A North Beaver Township man accused of attacking EMT personnel has been transferred to the Columbiana County Jail.

Twenty-four-year-old William Swagger allegedly attacked EMT personnel a little over a week ago and ran away in the Elkton area wearing only a t-shirt tied around his waist.

Shenango Township Police told 21 News that Swagger was being held in jail on October 3 in Mercer County.

The Columbiana County Sheriff's Department told 21 News that Swagger was being held on a detainer out of New Middletown for a misdemeanor drug charge.

That warrant was issued in 2018 according to court records.

Swagger faces an additional assault charge in connection to the alleged assault.
