Fight At Race Track Leads To Jail Term
MONTROSE — A man who assaulted an elderly man at a race track was sentenced Thursday in Susquehanna County court.
Garth Tonkin Jr. received one to 15 months in jail.
He pleaded guilty in November to simple assault in connection with a fight at Penn Can Speedway near Oakland in August of 2012.
Joe Walsh, 80, suffered head injuries after getting into the middle of the fight that started after one car cut off another during a race.
