Newark man arrested after outburst at local hospital

The Wayne County Sheriff’s Office reports the arrest of a Lyons man following an investigation into an incident at the Newark-Wayne Community Hospital on September 15th.

Deputies arrested Michael Wade, 40, for obstruction of governmental administration.


It’s alleged by law enforcement that while in custody of corrections staff on a prior arrest, he made several threats of disarming them while they were attempting to disarm him.

He then grabbed, kicked, and spit at a member of the corrections staff.

Wade was issued an appearance ticket on the above charge and will appear in local court at a later date.
