Man angry cops didn't have arrest warrant for him is jailed

EBENSBURG, Pa. (AP) " Police say a Pennsylvania man who became angry when told there were no outstanding warrants for his arrest has been jailed.

Cambria Township police say 40-year-old Mervin Sollenberger arrived at the Cambria County jail late Tuesday to surrender on outstanding arrest warrants. But police told him there were no warrants for his arrest.

WJAC-TV (http://bit.ly/2f4nuAJ ) reports that's when the Duncansville man became enraged, threatening to assault the jail's guards and kicking a steel cage door at the lockup.

Sollenberger has been charged with making terroristic threats and disorderly conduct. He remained jailed Thursday after failing to post 10 percent of his $20,000 bail.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Sollenberger. He faces a preliminary hearing Nov. 8.
