A Palmyra man who was arrested after three troopers were injured executing a search warrant in Wayne County faces even more charges stemming from an incident at the Newark-Wayne Community Hospital in March.
On March 12th, Michael Wiley, 33, of Palmyra is accused of fighting a nurse and security guard at the hospital causing injuries. He was being treated at the hospital when the incident unfolded.
The two employees suffered injuries as result of the incident. For his role in that incident Wilely was charged with fourth-degree criminal mischief, third-degree assault, and second-degree harassment on December 3rd.
The new charges came less than two weeks after Wiley was taken into custody following an assault on two troopers who responded to his residence in Palmyra for failure to appear. He was scheduled to appear in June for a separate court case on menacing and weapons charges.
Public Information Officer Mark O’Donnell with New York State Police told FingerLakes1.com that the third officer was responding to back up the two troopers who were being assaulted by Wiley at his Palmyra residence when he crashed – totaling the cruiser.
Wiley was arrested on felony assault charges after the incident involving the troopers. He was held on no bail.
Trooper O’Donnell told FingerLakes1.com that the two officers assaulted by Wiley required stitches, as they were struck with a space heater during the incident.
