Court Papers: Scranton Police Officer Cited by Game Commission

SCRANTON -- A Scranton police officer is in trouble for a deer he shot during rifle deer season in Lackawanna County.

According to court papers Patrolman Anthony Gieda was cited by the game commission.

Authorities say Gieda shot a doe in Ransom Township without the proper doe license.

Gieda allegedly shot the deer too close to a home or residence, then dumped the carcass in a cemetery.

There has been no word on what punishment Officer Gieda could face.

    I will never forget the time this officer gave me a parking ticket for parking to close to a corner at the CMC hospital. My son had a neck injury and the last thing I was worried about was parking! Good for him

    I like how this story fails to report how some deer have been seen standing in the middle of the road and stopping traffic. Not sure if it’s related to this.
