July 28—EBENSBURG — A Northern Cambria man accused of causing a collision and assaulting another driver pleaded guilty to multiple charges associated with the incident Monday.

Brandon Paul Shutty, 34, was charged with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment, harassment, simple assault and several traffic violations after state police said he ran another vehicle off Number 9 Road in Susquehanna Township Dec. 16.

According to state police in Ebensburg, Shutty was driving a 2008 Suzuki SX4 when he caused a collision with another vehicle before he got out and punched the other motorist. In a separate incident the same day, Shutty was charged with criminal mischief related to a damaged windshield.

The total restitution in the case amounts to about $3,779.

After entering a guilty plea for a total of six charges, Shutty told Cambria County President Judge Timothy Creany that he was not taking his medication for depression and other conditions at the time of the incident and became emotionally charged during the collision.

Creany accepted Shutty’s pleas and scheduled sentencing for Sept. 1. He also ordered Shutty to return with his medical records for treatments he’s received for depression and other mental illness.
