Cops: LA Woman Charged for Assaulting Police Officers

Published

on

She’s not the “LA Woman” Jim Morrison wrote about many years, but Gabrielle Louise Conte, 28, was charged for assaulting Middlletown Township  Police officers in an incident stemming from her being parked in the middle of a township street on Thursday night.

Police say Conte, from Los Angeles, Ca, struck officers when they tried to take her into custody.

According to court documents, Conte was parked in the middle of East Lincoln Highway after 8 p.m. Police said when they approached her they noticed glassy red eyes, the odor of alcohol, and slurred speech. As officers attempted to engage Conte she became extremely irate and screamed at police “just take me”, according to the criminal complaint.

Conte refused to answer questions and continued yelling at officers court records show.

Conte grabbed an officer by the groin when police tried to handcuff her, not letting go, police said.

Conte continued with her verbal attack on officers while handcuffed as they tried to search her pockets. The woman from California attempted to kick an officer in the face, missing, instead connecting with his chest and arms, police allege.

Conte, police said, was taken to a local medical facility for a blood alcohol test which she refused and continued with her alcohol infused verbal assault on police.

On the ride to police headquarters Conte, got on to the floor of the police cruiser which forced the officer to pull over, court documents allege.  Officers tried to get her up off the floor, she kicked one of them in the face requiring placement in a “restraint vehicle” and while in the station spit in an officers face.

Conte is charged with two felony counts of assaulting of police officer, one felony count of aggravated prisoner harassment, two DUI offenses and three charges of resisting arrest. She was jailed on 10 percent of $200,000.00 and is currently scheduled for a preliminary hearing on February 12 in district court

More than 80 Police Departments across Southeast Pennsylvania to Target Aggressive Drivers during Statewide Mobilization

Published

on

By

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT) announced today that more than 80 municipal police departments from Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties will join the Pennsylvania State Police in a coordinated aggressive driving enforcement wave. This collective effort, part of a statewide mobilization running through August 18, is aimed at reducing the number of crashes, injuries, and fatalities on our area roadways, ensuring your safety on the road.

The enforcement wave will target heavy truck violations, pedestrian safety, red light running, and tailgating. Motorists demonstrating unsafe behaviors, such as driving too fast for conditions or other aggressive actions, will also be cited.

Law enforcement will utilize strategies such as traffic enforcement zones, saturation patrols, speed enforcement details, corridor enforcement, work zone enforcement, and multi-jurisdictional patrol to identify and cite aggressive drivers.
The enforcement is part of Pennsylvania’s Highway Safety Program and is funded by part of PennDOT’s investment of federal funds from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
If you encounter an aggressive driver, PennDOT offers these tips:

  • Get out of their way and don’t challenge them.
  • Stay relaxed, avoid eye contact, and ignore rude gestures.
  • Don’t block the passing lane if you drive slower than most traffic.
  • Do not attempt to follow or pursue the vehicle. You or a passenger may call the police. But, if you use a cell phone, pull over to a safe location.
  • >

    According to 2023 PennDOT crash data, there were 1,363 aggressive driving crashes, resulting in 39 fatalities and 104 suspected serious injuries in Bucks, Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, and Philadelphia counties. Aggressive driving crashes involve at least two aggressive driving factors in the same crash. Factors include, but are not limited to, running stop signs or red lights, tailgating, careless turning or passing, and driving too fast for conditions.

    The goal of targeted enforcement is to reduce the number of aggressive driving-related crashes, injuries, and deaths on roadways throughout the state. Any aggressive driver stopped by police will receive a ticket.
