Written by Administrator. Posted in Crime

Police were called the the Love’s travel plaza in reference to a private property auto accident with no injuries. On police arrival the officer found the traffic in the lot to be backed up all the way to the Harrisburg Pike causing a traffic issue on the Pike. The officer found the accident, which involved two tractor trailers, both of which were completely blocking the lot. The vehicles were drivable, however, the drivers refused to move because they didn’t exchange information yet and the two trucks were stuck together. After a half dozen requests by the officer for the trucks to move out of the way to allow for movement of traffic, the suspect, Zackary Pender, of Louisiana, began to get in the officer’s face screaming, swearing and threatening him because he “had a bad day”. As the officer attempted to deescalate the situation the other driver began to move his truck. Seeing this, Pender ran over to the other driver, jumped up on the steps and stuck his upper torso in the open window, getting in the driver’s face making threats. The officer approached Pender and attempted to get him away from the other driver to avoid a pending assault. The officer had a hold of one arm and Pender spun around and punched the officer in the face. The officer then tased Pender and he was placed into custody. The officer was treated at Carlisle Hospital and suffered a concussion, contusions, and blunt force trauma. Pender, who was responsible for the accident, was charged with aggravated assault and disorderly conduct.
