Police said the trooper had identified himself to the cheerleaders and attempted to take one of them into custody when she refused to stop fighting.
Several people tried to pull the trooper away from the cheerleader and Jones, the girl’s uncle, attacked the trooper and threw him to the ground, police said.
The trooper, identified as Scott Roussell, then took Jones into custody at gunpoint, according to North Middleton Township police chief Doug Reitz.
The state police say that Roussell acted within his scope of duty and will not face any consequences for pulling his weapon. Jones was released on bond and is due to appear in court again next week. Charges are also pending against the 13-year-old cheerleader they say instigated the fight.
