STEVENS, Pa. (WHTM) – A Lebanon County man was arrested for assault after police said he struck a Pennsylvania Game Commission officer while fleeing an underage drinking party.

Shannon M. Miller, 21, of Newmanstown, is charged with two counts of aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, and summary driving offenses, according to Northern Lancaster County Regional police.

Police said game officers early Sunday had approached a group of people suspected of underage drinking and burning a camp fire on game lands in Clay Township when Miller fled in a vehicle and struck one of the officers.

The officer, who was not identified, was treated at the scene for non-life threatening injuries.

Miller was arrested at his home after state troopers found him hiding in his attic, police said.

He was placed in Lancaster County Prison on $5,000 bail.
