ATV driver charged with fleeing police

Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2013, 5:18 p.m.
 

A Penn Township man who told police he “couldn't afford any more trouble” allegedly fled on an all-terrain vehicle from an officer who had confronted the suspect on a local road.

When township officer Lewis Lock III approached Steven Paul Klingerman, 42, on the night of Nov. 18, Klingerman fled onto Baker School Road and Barefoot Lane before Lewis ended the chase.

Later that evening, when contacted by phone by police, Klingerman was cooperative and said he fled because he had “been in my share of trouble,” according to court documents.

Klingerman is free on $5,000 unsecured bond on a felony charge of fleeing police and several summary vehicle code violations, including, speeding, operating an ATV on a street and driving while operating privileges were suspended or revoked.

A preliminary hearing before District Judge Helen Kistler is scheduled for Jan. 14.
