North Huntingdon commissioner charged in traffic incident
A North Huntingdon commissioner is facing a summary charge after police say he was involved in a road rage incident.
David Herold, 58, who is the commissioner for the eastern ward of the township, received a summary for disorderly conduct. Two others — Jeffrey W. Rebosky and Amy Beth Rebosky, both of Cascade Avenue in Irwin — are also facing charges from the Oct. 18 incident.
Herold did not respond to requests for comment.
Jeffrey Rebosky, 48, is charged with two counts of driving under the influence, simple assault, disorderly conduct and two counts of harassment. Amy Rebosky, 51, is charged with simple assault and disorderly conduct.
The commissioner's son told police he was driving on Route 30 when he was cut off by Rebosky, according to a criminal complaint. Herold and his son told police the Reboskys followed them into the parking lot of the Circleville Fire Hall on Robbins Station Road.
Herold is accused of walking toward Rebosky while saying “I'll beat your (expletive),” according to court documents. Herold continued to make threatening statements while he was placed in handcuffs, police said.
A witness told police he saw the Reboskys “swinging” at the younger Herold, according to court documents. Police said he had two lacerations on his lips.
Preliminary hearings for the Rebosky have not been set yet.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.
While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.
We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers.
We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.
We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.
We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.
We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
