Who is Ronald Davis and why was he arrested?

Ronald K. Davis is a 37-year-old police officer specialised as a state trooper.

He was born on July 23, 1986, and he is from Williamstown, Pennsylvania.

While serving the Pennsylvania State Police, Davis is assigned to patrol Lebanon, Berks, and Schuylkill counties.

On September 21, 2023, Davis was arrested in relation to the alleged false imprisonment of Michelle Perfanov and charged with:

  • Felony strangulation
  • Unlawful restraint
  • False imprisonment
  • Simple assault
  • Recklessly endangering another person
  • Official oppression

According to an affidavit provided by the Dauphin County District Attorney, Davis and Perfanov had a previous romantic relationship that lasted for four months.

“These are merely charges and the defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty beyond a reasonable doubt,” Dauphin County said in a statement.

“IN THAT, on or about said date, THE DEFENDANT did knowingly or intentionally impede the breathing or circulation of the blood of another person by applying pressure to the throat or neck.”

Under the Mental Health Procedures Act, he acquired an involuntary commitment for Perfanov to have her admitted to a psychiatric ward for supposed “mental health problems.”

The affidavit reveals Davis collected the warrant to have Perfanov committed based on text message exchanges between the two.

“You’re absolutely insane…and then you paint me to look insane,” she can be heard saying.

“I don’t need help, I need to get away from you. Please let me go.

“This isn’t normal, I don’t care what anyone says. I’m not going to any jail, I haven’t done anything wrong.”

Perfanov claims Davis threatened her and said: “I know you’re not crazy, I’ll paint you as crazy.”

What happened to Michelle Perfanov?

On August 21, 2023, Perfanov was detained and taken to Lehigh Valley Hospital-Schuykill for observation.

Days later on Saturday, August 26, she was released from Lehigh Valley and questioned by police.

“Taken in context, the texts revealed her frustration with Trooper Davis and his controlling behavior (and her desire to break off the relationship), not a true desire to harm herself,” the abovementioned affidavit further explained.

Following her interrogation, Dauphin County observed that Perfanov did not seem mentally unstable.
