Police report drunken, combative misbehavior

Incidents ranging from a domestic assault to impaired driving were reported today by state police from the Embreeville barracks.

On Wednesday, police said they responded to the intersection of Marshallton Thorndale and Telegraph Roads for a two-vehicle crash. Police said a teenage driver from Downingtown, who was not identified due to age, was traveling westbound on Telegraph Road in a 1998 Toyota Land Cruiser. The driver stopped at the posted sign, but then proceeded through the intersection without clearance, police said. The Toyota was pushed into a wooden fence by a 2006 Dodge Ram 1500, which was operated by Robert W. Mackey, 54, of Coatesville, police said. Both drivers were belted and sustained minor injury, police said, adding that the teen was cited for failing to yield.

A family argument escalated into an alleged assault in Sadsbury Township on Sunday, police said. Scott E. Longacre Sr., 45, of Coatesville,, is accused of grabbing Scott E. Longacre Jr., 21, of Coatesville, by the neck and throwing him into a glass window. Longacre Sr. faces a harassment charge, according to court records.

A traffic stop last Friday on Rt. 82, south of Rt. 30 in Coatesville, resulted in charges against a Coatesville resident, police said. Julia D. Stevens, 47, was determined to be under the influence and in possession of drugs, police said.

On April 22, police investigating a disabled vehicle on the Rt. 30 bypass, west of Rt. 340 in Caln Township, said they determined that the driver, Dominique P. Nugent, 23, of Coatesville, had been operating the vehicle under the influence.

    Mike is right: This is a work in progress. We share your sentiments, though, and I hope you didn’t miss the stories we posted recently about Kite Day, the teen orienteering champ, or the Coatesville Youth Initiative, which just received kudos from the White House.
    Yesterday, I learned about some other positive Coatesville news, such as an upcoming farmers’ market and a community garden program. You’ll hear more about those soon…

    I just learned about the Coatesville Times e-news after reading a great edition of the Unionville Times. Since I live in West Marlborough Township and have a Coatesville address, I was hoping to find some great local news about my neighboring town. Instead, I saw a front page negative headline followed by the police log report.

    In view of the downtown improvement efforts, youth initiatives, school activities, community actions and arts in Coatesville, I implore you to refrain from perpetuating the negative image that Coatesville businesses and residents are trying so hard to change. I would rather see a blank edition of the Coatesville Times than the one I just read.

      Hi Berta.

      We appreciate your comments and are not satisfied with The Coatesville Times, either. It is a work in progress and we hope to have it up to the same level as The Unionville Times in short order. We don’t want to focus on just the negative — and while I agree we need to do more, we’ve also had a good share of positive stories.

      Please continue to let us know if you feel we aren’t improving and thank you for your input.
