3 Lancaster, 2 Bradford, 2 Dauphin, 2 Lebanon, 1 Chester, 1 Luzerne, 1 Philadelphia and 1 York.
This problem appears to be on the way to becoming an epidemic….
Some clown from Dauphin County was driving his ATV on the road while in the Weiser State Forest. The forest ranger, Nicola Zulli, tried to stop this bozo from driving his ATV on the road. His response was to accelerate and hit the ranger, breaking her leg. Then our hero leaves the scene of the accident with the ranger lying in the road with a broken leg. WTH is wrong with people?????????????????
Police found Mr. Michael Matter, III at a Jackson Twp. residence and took him into custody. This smacked ass is in the Dauphin County jail because he could not post the necessary $250,000 bail. He confessed to hitting Ranger Zulli and is charged with a laundry list of crimes.
