Police: Pa. man, 80, used tractor to fling rocksSeptember 17, 2013 @ 7:52 am
ROCHESTER, Pa. (AP) - An 80-year-old Pennsylvania man has been charged with using his lawn tractor to fling rocks and debris at neighbors and police.
The Beaver County Times ( http://bit.ly/166Yh2q) reports Donald Martin drove his tractor toward three neighbors after using the machine to pull a bush out of the ground in a property line dispute on June 21.
On July 3 and Aug. 30, police say Martin drove the tractor over bare ground so the mower would fling rocks and other debris at his neighbors and _ in the last encounter _ a responding police officer.
Martin, of Rochester Township, doesn't have a listed phone number and online court records don't list an attorney for him. He faces a preliminary hearing Sept. 24 on simple assault and other charges.
