June 10, 2014
CLEARFIELD – Clearfield County District Attorney, William A. Shaw, Jr., announced Clearfield County's Fugitive of the Week for the week of June 9, 2014. Shaw identified the Fugitive as Phillip Lee Wilkinson, age 31, of Chestnut Street, DuBois, Pennsylvania. Shaw stated that Wilkinson is wanted for failure to appear at a Preliminary Hearing on May 9, 2014.

On April 30, 2014, Corporal Randall L. Young of the DuBois City Police Department, filed a Criminal Complaint charging Wilkinson with: 1) Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol, M; 2) Resisting Arrest, M2; 3) Drivers Required to be Licensed, S; and 4) Turning Movements and Required Signals, S.

An Affidavit of Probable Cause filed by Corporal Young states that on April 29, 2014, the DuBois City Police Department were dispatched to area of Chestnut Street, DuBois City, for the report of a domestic dispute. Upon arrival at the scene, the victim relayed that Wilkinson had been drinking all day and had just left the scene. Officers then located the vehicle traveling on West Weber Avenue, and a traffic stop was conducted. Upon making contact with the driver of the vehicle, Young detected signs of impairment and Wilkinson was removed from the vehicle. Wilkinson then became argumentative with the officers, and resisted being taken into custody. Officers ultimately were able to place Wilkinson into the patrol vehicle, and once inside he began kicking the doors and bars on the windows.

A Preliminary Hearing was scheduled for May 9, 2014, at which time Wilkinson failed to appear and a warrant was issued for his arrest.
