What happens if a police dog sniffs around your porch?

A number of drug possession arrests stem from the use of drug sniffing dogs. They are used in airports, seaports, and occasionally brought in to search vehicles. Wherever the search is conducted, police must have probable cause in order to use drug sniffing dogs.

Crash kills driver after vehicle spins out of control

A crash on Route 14 in Union Township, Pennsylvania, has left a 51-year-old man dead. The truck accident occurred around 9:15 a.m. in Tioga County on Route 14 earlier this month. The driver of the septic pumping truck was the victim in the crash. According to reports, the truck spilled thousands of gallons of sewage and several agencies responded to the scene in order to address the situation.

Philly police officer charged with DUI

It is ironic when police officers are arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. After all, they are charged with enforcing the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, so the expectation is that they would follow the laws that are put in force. For a police officer from the City of Philadelphia, this promise was allegedly broken.

Man charged for accident that killed his girlfriend

A 31-year-old man has been charged with the unintentional death of his girlfriend. According to reports, the accident happened in Wells Township, Pennsylvania, in April of last year. Though the car crash happened nearly a year ago, the driver was not arrested or charged until recently. The man has two addresses: one in Indiana, Pennsylvania, and another in Columbia Cross Roads, Pennsylvania.

The trouble with texting while driving

Texting while driving in Pennsylvania is against the law. Drivers caught sending (or reading) messages while behind the wheel are subject to a $50 fine. Subsequent violations will result in higher fines. The impetus behind the law was to make roads safer, as distracted driving accidents (crashes where one or both drivers were focused on a mobile device) have become so severe that they spawned a national campaign against texting while driving.

Scranton crash involves fire chief, pedestrian

According to reports, the chief of the Scranton Fire Department was recently involved in a fatal crash. Officials have said that the administrative official was driving his pickup truck in Scranton, Pa., when he collided with a pedestrian. The car accident killed the pedestrian, a woman who was reportedly serving on a grand jury case downtown.
