Texas Drunk Driving In Bradford County

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette is reporting a crime boom in Bradford County, PA. The correlation (and probable cause) is all the drilling activity in the Marcellus Shale. That also means more data points for tracing the migration story associated with the economic activity. The Texas-sized drinking problem:

Robert Creighton, 30, Texas, charged with driving under the influence of alcohol, was accepted into the ARD program and placed on probation for a term of 12 months. While on probation Creighton will be subject to supervision by the Bradford County Probation Department which supervision will include monitoring for drug or alcohol use. Additionally, Creighton must perform community service with the DUI Litter Brigade and attend a Victim Impact Panel and he will lose his driving privilege for 30 days. Officer Sean Flynn of the Sayre Police Department arrested Creighton for the offense following investigation of a traffic violation that occurred in Sayre Borough.

I could spend all afternoon trolling the Bradford County Court News for evidence of itinerant labor and the social impact on host communities. Think of all the tax dollars saved thanks to a more active DUI Litter Bridage! Help Redd Up Pennsylvania: Drill Marcellus Shale.
