SUNBURY – Michael James Robinson, 56, of Shamokin, was charged Thursday by Northumberland County Detective Degg Stark with impersonating a public servant, disorderly conduct and disrupting public meetings over multiple dates and times in 2019 and at multiple locations, one of which was Monday's Shamokin City Council meeting.

He told officials and others in the room at the meeting he was there as a federal officer working on behalf of the U.S. Attorney General and was there to have them arrested. He accused council member Scott Roughton of burning his Lincoln Street home down, pacing around the room and yelling.
