Troopers: EMT Assaulted by Off-Duty Resort Worker

LACKAWAXEN TOWNSHIP — An off-duty employee of a resort in Pike County allegedly got drunk and assaulted an EMT, breaking the woman’s hand.

State police say the incident at Woodloch Resort near Hawley happened April 28.

According to troopers, Robert Filarsky, 32, the resort’s social supervisor, was off-duty at a golf tournament and had been drinking alcohol all day.

Around 9 p.m. that night, Filarsky hit his head.

State police say that when a crew from Lackawaxen Ambulance was taking Filarsky to the hospital, he grabbed the arm of EMT Cori Larsen and refused to let go. Larsen suffered a broken hand and possible nerve damage.

Filarsky is charged with aggravated assault. Troopers say several other off-duty Woodloch employees are being cited for disorderly conduct because they had also been drinking and harassed emergency crews as they tried to help Filarsky.

State police say the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board has been notified about several recent alcohol-related incidents at Woodloch Resort in Pike County.
