3 Teens Charged with Tossing Apples from Car

Juveniles will face disorderly conduct charges for apparent joyride in Lower Macungie Township, police say.

Three Macungie-area teens recently were charged by police for making applesauce.

Of course, there is no such criminal charge, but that was the essence of their actions Nov. 9 as they tossed apples at objects from a moving motor vehicle in Lower Macungie Township, according to state police at Fogelsville.

Officially, the charge was disorderly conduct, according to the report. 

The three juveniles, ages 15-17, drove through the area of Tuscany Drive about 8 p.m., police said. They threw apples from the windows of the vehicle at unspecified objects.

Police did not say whether anything was struck or how much damage was done.

Charges are pending in district court before Magisterial District Judge Michael Faulkner of Upper Macungie Township.

Very disappointed that the LMT Craft Fair wasn't covered by the Lower Macungie Patch. The Patch is always ready to provide negative articles why not include some positive ones.

Because like most media, telling you the truth is not the primary objective, it's revenue through readership. People love a good train wreck and they are more than happy to describe it to you. Distorted perception of our community is a side effect that helps advance an agenda.

I'm betting that these kids didn't pay for the car they were driving/riding in. If the driver did they may understand that throwing apples will damage something that will cost money to repair. Hopefully these kids will learn what hard work is and the value of a dollar.

Were you interested in the craft fair? Did you go? What does that have to do with "negative media?"

No one care about your two cents
