Oblong chief injured during Tuesday arrest
Oblong Police Chief Chad Pusey was injured while arresting a suspect Tuesday night.

Around 5:30 p.m., Pusey responded to an ambulance call for a intoxicated teen in an automobile at 220 E. Alabama St., Oblong. In an interview, Pusey said he assisted the parents in getting 18-year-old Harley McDaniel into the house and released him into their custody. Some time later, Pusey received another call saying McDaniel had left the home through a window and may be wandering around in the cold in his underwear. Pusey said, McDaniel was located at a residence at 316 North Range St. According to Pusey, McDaniel became verbally abusive and assaulted him. While attempting to subdue the suspect, McDaniel began hitting the police car, breaking the window and cutting himself. Pusey was also injured in the struggle.

After McDaniel was secured, Pusey called for assistance from the Crawford County Sheriff's Department, the Oblong Fire Department and United Life Care Ambulance Service to treat McDaniel's injuries.

Both Pusey and McDaniel were treated for non-life threatening injuries at Crawford Memorial Hospital.

McDaniel was arrested for criminal damage to state supported property, resisting a peace officer and unlawful consumption of alcohol. He remains in custody at the Crawford County Jail awaiting bond.
