The LBPD patrol function has filed a criminal complaint against Robert J. BEIBER (age 44), of Lititz, alleging the crimes of Terroristic Threats and Simple Assault.  The LBPD is currently in possession of an arrest warrant for BEIBER.  The arrest warrant and criminal charges are associated with BEIBER's alleged conduct on 03/24/2019 at 7:07 PM in the 000 Block of East Second Avenue, which prompted a police response and the use of Crisis Negotiators.  Details about the specific facts which are the basis of the criminal charges were contained in the previous release.

BEIBER is not currently in police custody, but rather he remains hospitalized under medical care for a condition that did not result from the arrest.  Once BEIBER is medically cleared he will be taken into custody and further legal process associated with the arrest warrant will follow. 

It should be emphasized that BEIBER is not at personal liberty and currently poses no threat to public safety and is not a flight risk.

Additional details will be posted as they become available and are appropriate.
