Trooper Matt Maggs said Brion Wagner, of Jersey Shore, was charged with allegedly four counts of corruption of minors, three counts statutory sexual assault; three counts aggravated indecent assault, and one count indecent assault. Wagner allegedly committed these crimes in Gallagher and Pine Creek Township in Clinton County, and Jersey Shore borough, Lycoming County.

Hughesville Man Jailed Following Alleged Aggravated Assault Incident - PSP Montoursville were dispatched to a domestic incident in Wolf Township late Saturday evening, resulting in an arrest of a 45-year-old man. Trooper Matthew Sweet said on July 28, shortly before 10 p.m., authorities responded to 1342 Horn Hill Road, Hughesville, where Michele Long and her boyfriend, Robert Lyons had been involved in an argument which turned physical. Lyons allegedly grabbed Long by the neck and choked her. Long indicated that she fled to her vehicle to call 911 for help.
While Troopers Adam Kirk and Brandon Schrawder responded to the incident, Lyons contacted state police and said he did not want police on his private property and there would be trouble if authorities responded. Once Kirk and Schrawder arrived on scene, Lyons was observed standing on the porch of the residence, pointing a long gun at their vehicle and directly at them as they got out of their vehicles. Lyons placed an additional phone call to the Montoursville barracks and related that he was going to shoot and demanded for the police to remove themselves from his driveway.
Consequently, a perimeter was set up around the residence, Sweet said. Lyons came onto a back porch area and again pointed his long gun firearm at Kirk and Hughesville Borough Police Officer Rod Smith. Later durng the standoff, Lyons appeared in the same area of the residence and pointed his gun at Kirk, Smith and Cpl. Brad Eisenhower, yelling at the officers, "I'm going to f------g kill you." At one point, Lyons came out the front door with a long gun hidden along the side of his body and yelled "Shoot me so I can shoot back."
At approximately 11:07 p.m. he was taken into custody just outside his residence. Troopers did a cursory search of the residence to assure there were no other victims, Sweet said. During the sweep, a scoped long gun rifle was observed leaning against the wall just inside the door, a shotgun leaning against another wall and several boxes of ammunition inside the residence.
During the investigation a criminal history record of Lyons revealed that he was convicted of an enumerated offense under the PA Firearms Act and was not permitted to possess firearms; 17 firearms were seized from the residence, Sweet said.
Lyons was later arraigned before District Judge Allen Page for aggravated assault, person not to possess firearms, terroristic threats, possessing instrument of crime, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person and harassment. Page set bail at a disappointing $45,000; Lyons was remanded to the Lycoming County Prison, Sweet said.
