Police say Easton man arrested for drunk driving spat on officer

When Pennsylvanians consume an excessive amount of alcohol, their behavior may become uncontrollable and unpredictable. Unfortunately, when they have reached this point, they may be unable to make wise decisions when it comes to drinking and driving. When law enforcement is able to recognize and stop a drunk driver before he has the opportunity to cause harm to himself or anyone else, they are doing the community a great service.

Texting believed to be cause of deadly truck accident

An accident involving three tractor-trailers and an SUV that killed two people in May 2013 will be the subject of a trial in a Pennsylvania courtroom later this year. The driver of one of the trucks has been charged with several criminal offenses, one of which involved an excessive number of texts found on his phone in the hours preceding the truck accident

Law enforcement arrests more than a dozen alleged drug distributors in Centre County

People who distribute illegal drugs often work together in well-coordinated networks. However, when Pennsylvania law enforcement discovers an important piece of information, it often leads to a more thorough investigation, and ultimately the members of the network are arrested for drug crimes such as possession with intent to distribute. When Pennsylvanians read about these cases, it is important for them to remember that everyone is innocent until proven guilty, even if the person has some connection to a drug ring.

Study: Older drivers are more fit to drive than ever before

Many Philadelphia residents do not want to give up their car keys when they get older. Many of us link driving to our independence, and the thought of giving up this privilege is a difficult one. At the same time, as people age their children often start telling them they are no longer fit to drive. 

Philadelphia police veteran faces vehicular manslaughter charges

While people are recovering from a traumatic life event, such as the loss of a loved one, their behavior may be unpredictable and even destructive. Unfortunately, Pennsylvanians in these unfortunate circumstances are not exempt from punishment if they break drunk driving laws.

Band held liable for injuries at Philadelphia concert

If you go to a public event such as a concert, where perhaps hundreds of people have gathered to enjoy a show, each patron of that show should be able to count on the event organizers and performers to provide an environment that is reasonably safe. If an event organizer or a property owner fails in this duty, and if a person suffers serious injuries as a result, then the injured party should be aware of the options for holding the responsible parties liable for damages.

Police say former officer was driving 100 mph in fatal DUI crash

Philadelphia residents may recall news of a deadly September crash involving a former police sergeant. The officer is accused of being intoxicated and driving more than 100 miles per hour when his vehicle hit a van on State Road in Northeast Philadelphia. The van driver, a 55-year-old father of four, suffered traumatic head injuries and died three days after the collision.

Banker faces wire fraud charges after he stages his suicide

When Pennsylvanians are suspected of fraud, they sometimes take drastic actions to hide their behavior. In some severe cases, their mistakes change the lives of their spouses, children, and extended family members. However, it is important for Pennsylvanians to remember that everyone is innocent until proven guilty; even if someone appears to be covering up his mistakes, he may not have committed fraud or any other type of white collar crime.

Police arrest woman who sold heroin through East Liberty McDonald’s drive-thru window

Because illegal drugs such as heroin are so addictive, some Pennsylvanians will do anything to find and obtain it. In some cases, these illegal drugs are brought and sold in unlikely places. However, these clandestine activities are sometimes reported to law enforcement, and the drug seller is ultimately charged with a drug crime.

President Obama pressures universities to address sexual assault problem

When Pennsylvania parents send their children to college this fall, they may worry that their daughters, especially, will be changed forever by the trauma of sexual assault. Thankfully, high-level politicians are putting pressure on university officials across the country to lower the incidence of sex crimes on college campuses.
