Shawn Hobel sues DA and police chief for slander

| November 21, 2017 | 47 Comments

In New Castle, Pennsylvania, Shawn Hobel was arrested for a robbery and he was shot by police during his apprehension. So he’s decided that he’s going to sue the district attorney because his parents hadn’t been notified of his injury before the DA mentioned it during a press conference. He says that the DA, Joshua Lamancusa, also accused him of 10 robberies.

Hobel also filed a separate lawsuit against New Castle police Chief Bobby Salem for defamation. Both suits were written by hand and filed without a lawyer.

He claims that he was only a suspect in two robberies.

The press conference, called by Lamancusa, addressed an incident earlier in the day on Dec. 13 in which Shenango Township police had tried to pull over Hobel’s car after it allegedly was seen at a convenience store where a robbery had occurred. Hobel led police from multiple jurisdictions on a high-speed chase through multiple counties. The chase ended on Interstate 376 in Union Township, when he pulled the car over and held a gun to the head of a woman inside, threatening to shoot her.

A New Castle policeman in turn fired shots through the car window at Hobel and freed the woman. Hobel was hit by the gunfire multiple times in the chest and was hospitalized for his injuries. He was arrested upon his release.

Police learned through the investigation that Hobel had used a toy gun — a plastic replica of a semiautomatic gun — in the incident.

Oh, by the way, he’s been charged for another robbery since the incident that triggered the lawsuit. He was also on parole when the above incident occurred.

Hobel claims in his complaint that Salem and Lamancusa caused him to lose close friends and loved ones and the trust and respect of the community because of what he claims are “false allegations.”

Hobel claims in his filing to be a well-respected mason in the community and that comments that he attributes to Lamancusa and Salem will cost him numerous job opportunities. He further contends that his family “has been forced to suffer friends as well as the respect of the community,” and that he, himself, suffered “emotionally and mental agony.”

I’d feel for him, but I can’t reach him.

    Shawn Hobel is a pillar of the community; all these arrests and charges are just attempts by the DA and Police Chiefs to hurt his reputation because they are jealous of Shawn’s successes and all he has done for the community…(sarc)

      You laugh, but in the next few months, after you guys have forgot about Shawn, sure-as-shit, I’ll get a comment from some chick along those lines – probably the same woman to whose head he held the pistol last year.

      • Graybeard says:

        “He was just turning his life around!”

        We shake our heads over guys who think with the little head. There are, evidently, a surfeit of girls whose main criterion is that he makes her feel so good, and is such a poor misunderstood soul.

        Or maybe you’ll get some blowback from the “Jiharian” groupies who used to show up during the trial of Boston Marathon bombing defendant Dzokhar Tsarnaev, aka “the tousle-haired boy”. Their “Free Jahar Tsarnaev” Facebook page is still active… with 31 likes!

    Stupid is as stupid does.

    And Shawn Hobel takes stupid to a hole new and deeper level.

  3. Tom Huxton says:

    An alleged mason of moderate skill should not be allegedly robbing party stores and allegedly holding alleged hostages.

  4. Ron O says:

    So this has what to do with Vets and the .MIL?

  5. ChipNASA says:

    That’s some Bernathian stupidity right there.

    Shawn “Dan Jr.” Hobel

  6. OWB says:

    Now that’s some funny chit right there. Thanks for the laugh, Jonn. And Shawn.

  7. USAFRetired says:

    I’m waiting for him to refile and charge a HIPAA violation because he provided status about his health.

    Dude could make some honest money hooking a two stroke engine to those ears and become the first ever self-propelled aerial Uber driver

  9. Those big old goofy Mickey Mouse ears will make fine hand grips for the jail house denizens to grab onto , he’ll be someone’s jail house spouse on a regular basis. And if he grows a moustache it could be the total experience for Bubba, Thor, Tiny & Big Al

    He should have just stuck to making space telescopes for NASA. HHMMMMMMM, maybe this isn’t the telescope guy. I guess when he makes his court appearance, he will HOBEL over to the bench with his leg irons on.

  13. Atkron says:

    Shawn Hobel needs to quit tilting his head when trimming that pussy hair on his chin.

    Looks like an upside-down fade…

  14. E4 Mafia For Life. says:

    I think he’s going to get a sucking face wound in Federal Pound Me In The Ass Prison.

  15. UpNorth says:

    What is going to cost Shawn “numerous job opportunities” is doing 20 to 30 years for armed robbery, kidnapping and false imprisonment. Not to mention finishing out whatever sentence he was paroled on.

  16. Mason says:

    Can I now sue him since he claims to associate with my people? Makes being Mason seem all skeevy and untoward.

  17. jonp says:

    Hold the friggen phone…The cops fired multiple shots and hit him in the chest multiple times and he is alive to file a lawsuit? WTF those guys using, Airsoft Guns???

  18. OAE CPO USN Ret says:
