September 12, 2011

WAYNESBORO, Pa. — A Washington Township, Pa., police officer fired his service weapon three times at a moving vehicle Sept. 3, police said in a news release issued Monday.

Police attempted to stop a green Chevrolet pickup truck shortly after midnight at the intersection of Pa. 16 and Monterey Lane in Blue Ridge Summit, Pa., the news release stated.

A brief pursuit ended at Monterey Country Club, then the driver jumped out of the truck and ran away, police said.

Three passengers remained in the vehicle. Police said they caught the driver, Robert Glacken of Gettysburg, Pa., but one of the passengers got into the driver’s seat of the truck and drove toward the officer and Glacken.

“The police gave verbal and visual orders to the driver of the truck to stop, but the vehicle continued in the wrong lane of travel and continued to travel toward the officer and Glacken,” police wrote in the news release.

The officer fired three shots to stop the truck and driver, but the vehicle swerved and disappeared, police said.

The truck was found at an apartment building in Dover, Pa., by officers of the Northern York Regional Police Department.

Police obtained a warrant for a suspect, Donald Ray Andrews, and charged him with aggravated assault, reckless endangerment and simple assault.

Anyone with information about the incident is asked to call their local police department.
