ROCHESTER, Pa. (AP) – An 80-year-old western Pennsylvania man has been charged with using his lawn tractor to fling rocks and debris at neighbors and police in three separate incidents since June.
Online court records don’t list an attorney for Donald Martin, of Rochester Township, who faces a preliminary hearing Sept. 24 on simple assault and other charges.
The Beaver County Times reports Martin drove his lawn tractor toward three neighbors after using the vehicle to pull a bush out of the ground in a property line dispute on June 21.
In two subsequent incidents, on July 3 and Aug. 30, police say Martin drove the tractor over bare ground so the mower would fling rocks and other debris at his neighbors and – in the August incident – a responding police officer.
Martin doesn’t have a listed phone.
