Mark Kessler No Longer Police Chief

GILBERTON — The mayor of Gilberton in Schuylkill County confirmed that Mark Kessler is now the borough’s former police chief.

Officials in Gilberton came to a settlement with Kessler on Thursday to retire as chief.

He became the center of a controversy in summer of last year after he posted profanity-laced videos of himself online, firing automatic weapons.

Officials in Gilberton suspended Kessler soon after that.

Now, Mark Kessler is out as police chief in Gilberton.
