The charges are the result of an incident that occurred around 12:40 p.m. on Thursday, October 31, 2019 at the Clarion Psych Center located at 2 Hospital Drive, in Monroe Township, Clarion County.

Details of the case:

According to a criminal complaint filed on October 31 by Trooper Wilson, of PSP Clarion, PA Constable Ronald Tanner was about to transport Tammie Mong to her residence, as she was being released from the Clarion Psych Center.

The complaint states that “Mong had her belongings in her possession and got a knife out of her bag and began to cut her wrists.” Constable Tanner then attempted to take the knife from Mong.

At that point, it is alleged that Mong swung the knife toward Constable Tanner with the blade going across the palm of his hand. The knife scratched the skin of his hand but did not cause any bleeding, according to the complaint.

Constable Tanner had Mong by her wrist, and she then dropped the knife, the complaint states.

Constable Tanner sustained a scratch to the palm of his hand from the knife.

Court documents indicate that Mong was arraigned at 2:45 p.m. on Thursday, October 31.
