The following reports were obtained from local police departments. The individuals charged with crimes are presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
• Sugar Grove Police on Aug. 31 were on a domestic trouble call when Ryan W. Miller, 20, of the 100 block of Meadows Drive, arrived on the scene and began shouting at the officers who were present. Police detected a strong odor of alcohol emanating from Miller, and knowing that he was only 20 years of age, informed him that he was being placed under arrest for underage consumption of alcohol. Miller became even more irate, struggled with police while being handcuffed, and would not go willingly into the rear of the squad car. Police allowed Miller to remain in the rear of the vehicle until he calmed down, at which time he was taken to the Sugar Grove Police Station and charged with illegal consumption of alcohol by a minor and resisting a police officer.
• David M. Dulceak, 32, of the 500 block of Reader Street, was charged Sept. 2 with driving on a suspended license after police ran a check on his vehicle as it left the BP Amoco headed east on Route 38 and found it was suspended on Aug. 25, 2011. Dulceak posted his driver’s license as bond and was released.
