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.
