Man to be sentenced today after allegedly pushing a door into a police officer

Local News

A man accused of pushing an officer heads to trial today.

Police officers went to the home of Shane Gabel back in October 2018 after Gabel was charged with aggravated assault for a previous incident. As officers entered the Albion residence, Gabel allegedly picked up a door to hide behind then pushed that door into an officer.

Gabel previously waived his right to a preliminary hearing in East Springfield District Court. Now, he faces several charges including resisting arrest and aggravated assault.

Gabel will enter court at 1:30pm today for sentencing.
