Woman calls 911 seeking a divorce

GIRARD, Pa. (AP) — Police have cited a 42-year-old Pennsylvania woman for disorderly conduct after she called 911 requesting a divorce and police assistance to make her husband leave.

Troopers say the woman called just after 1 a.m. Saturday asking that officers be sent to her home in Girard Township.

Police say they explained to the woman that a divorce is a civil matter and that they could not make her husband leave the residence because no crime had been committed.

Instead, police have cited the woman for disorderly conduct and misusing the Erie County 911 system.

Pa. men toss dead mammals into bar

BROOKVILLE, Pa. (AP) — Police in one western Pennsylvania town are investigating a case of bar kill: a groundhog and a grouse, both dead, tossed into a tavern by unsatisfied customers.

The animals were tossed into Bill’s Bar hours apart Sunday in Brookville.

Brookville police Chief Ken Dworek says the suspects are an underage man who was refused service at the bar and another who was turned away because of “an alcohol problem.” The chief says such use of animals is a fairly common problem in Brookville. He says, for example, “a guy will get in an argument and put a dead squirrel on his girlfriend’s doorknob, that kind of thing.”
