State News, Officer Charged with Manslaughter in 2022 Death
Monaca – A police officer from Beaver County has been charged with manslaughter in the death of a Center Township man. Officer, John J. Hawk of the Center Township Police Department was off-duty when he allegedly assaulted a witness to a shooting outside of a Wal-Mart last year, which led to the man’s death. According to the office of the Attorney General, other police officers testified to a grand jury that Hawk was not even on duty during the incident and that the witness he attacked was not presenting himself as a threat to anyone else at the crime scene; it was testified that Hawk was only there to keep the perimeter clear, was not in uniform, and not authorized to attempt arrests.
The AG says that Hawk was not in uniform, had no police credentials on his person, and didn’t identify himself when security footage and witness testimony showed he physically pulled a 48-year-old man away from another officer and pushed them to the pavement of the Wal-Mart parking lot. The man died later at a hospital from head injuries sustained from hitting the ground. John Hawk turned himself in to face charges yesterday.
