Philadelphia police issued an arrest warrant for Pennsylvania State Rep. Kevin Boyle (D) on Tuesday. The warrant is for a violation of a restraining order.

According to reports, Boyle texted his estranged wife, which is a violation of the restraining order. Boyle was arrested and charged in September 2021 for harassment and violating a protection order filed by his ex-wife.

The charges were dropped due to a mental health evaluation and treatment plan in a deal with the Philadelphia District Attorney’s Office.

Two months ago, Boyle went viral on social media after he was seen on camera allegedly threatening staff at the Gaul & Co. Malt House.

He threatened to close down the bar and to block the promotions of individuals who he wrongly thought were military drinking at the bar.

“Do you not think I will prevent your promotion to the United States military?” Boyle asked in the video.

Police said Boyle was reportedly drunk and possibly under the influence of drugs at the time of the incident. Boyle was asked to leave the bar several times by employees but refused and allegedly threatened the employees.

However, he was never charged for the incident. Boyle eventually left the bar that night, and police told him he was banned from the bar.

In a statement, House Majority Leader Matt Bradford expressed concerns over Boyle and his mental health.

“I love Kevin, but I have serious concerns about his mental health, and it breaks my heart to see him this way. I hope he gets the help he needs,” Bradford said.

The Pennsylvania House Democratic Leadership called the video very troubling and explained why access to mental health services was necessary.

“Representative Boyle has been open about his personal challenges. We are encouraged that our colleague and dear friend is seeking help,” a spokesperson said. “Our commitment to delivering mental health services does not stop at the Capitol Steps. One of the main reasons we advocate so strongly for mental health access is the reality that challenges can and do happen to anyone, and seeking treatment should be encouraged, not stigmatized.”

Boyle is the brother of Rep. Brendan Boyle (D-PA), who represents Pennsylvania’s 2nd District Congress.
