Two officers were hurt during the incident. One was treated at Robert Packer Hospital in Sayre, Pennsylvania. The other was treated at Lourdes Hospital in Binghamton.

Krowiak is facing a slew of charges, including four counts of Aggravated Assault. He's being held in the Bradford County Correctional Facility on $100,000 bail.
