Bernville District Judge Andrea Book, says a Pennsylvania state senator who allegedly displayed a handgun while driving on Interstate 78 is guilty of a summary charge of disorderly conduct. Sen. Bob Mensch was convicted after a bench trial that lasted more than two hours.
Senator Mensch waved his little gun at another motorist in a road rage incident.
Mensch faces a maximum $300 fine and 90 days in jail, but the prosecutor says he will not recommend jail time.
Mensch, a Montgomery County Republican, denied displaying any weapon even though state troopers who stopped him after the March 9 incident found two handguns in his vehicle. Mensch, who has a permit to carry the weapons, said the other motorist was harassing him.
Nice, huh? No jail time for threatening another motorist with a gun, then lying about possession of the weapons! What a deal.
