Man accused of damaging car with tossed beer bottle in Rostraver

Rostraver police allege a 29-year-old man threw a beer bottle out of his car, causing it to ricochet off Route 51 and strike another car.

This week, police charged David E. Millero, of Uniontown, with reckless endangerment, propulsion of missiles onto roadways and criminal mischief before District Judge Charles Christner. Police said the bottle caused about $1,000 in damage to the victim’s car.

Police said the incident occurred after 6 p.m. April 24 along the northbound lanes of the highway near Mobert Drive. The victim, who was driving a 2019 white Honda Accord in the same direction, was unable to get Millero to stop and took photographs of the fleeing car’s license plate.

Sgt. Daniel Cope reported the damage was caused by a green Rolling Rock Beer bottle. Cope said he called Millero after the incident.

“Millero admitted to driving his vehicle in the area during the time and had an interaction with the victim in a white vehicle, but denied throwing anything out of the vehicle,” Cope wrote in court documents.

Christner scheduled a preliminary hearing for July 1.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

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.
