WHEELING -- Brain Schultz, 37, was arraigned Tuesday for additional following federal indictments that indicate he was the alleged ring leader of a group selling pills, cocaine and other drugs in the Ohio Valley.

According to court documents, Schultz was arrested for two counts of obstruction and two counts of battery after an incident on Jan. 22.

Police say Schultz attempted to stab himself, in the chest, with a box cutter.  The Ohio County Sheriff’s Dept. was responding to the medical incident when Schultz left the scene.

Deputies say Schultz came at police, when they pulled him over, in a combative stance.

Officers say he ignored commands to “stop” and “get down on the ground.”

Schultz then threw his lighter and a wallet at deputies, according to reports.

Police say the outburst may have stemmed from search warrants, property taken from federal agents and federal charges brought against Schultz.

According to U.S. Attorney William Ihlenfeld, II, Schultz is charged with Conspiracy to Distribute II & III controlled substances, conspiracy to engage in interstate travel aid of racketeering, possession with intent to distribute Buprenorphine and maintaining a drug involved premise.

He was arraigned my magistrate Joe Roxby on Tuesday on state charges. He is in the Northern Regional Jail on $8,000 bond. He is scheduled to appear on federal charges Thursday.
