Big Crowd for Skate with a Cop in Wilkes-Barre

WILKES-BARRE TOWNSHIP, Pa. -- Hundreds came out Thursday night to support those who serve and protect in Luzerne County.

Police officers from more than 20 departments attended "Skate with a Cop" at Skateaway in Wilkes-Barre Township.

Organizers put together the outing as a way to honor and say thank you to local and state police officers.

"This is definitely one of the most interesting things I've done in my uniform but it's a little more difficult, a little extra weight, but we're out here have a good time anyway," said Lt. Anthony White, Hazleton police.

Money raised will be used to purchase shields for officers in Luzerne County.

    I wonder if the organizer of this event is going to pay back all of the people he scammed out of money with his supposed DJ service, supposed camera installer company, and his supposed pressure washing company. Read the reviews online about all the people he took money from and never went to do the work and stopped responding to their calls. He better get to work paying off the newest court ordered judgment that was just signed by a judge like two weeks ago. Did he ever pay back that $40,000+ that he was convicted of stealing a few years back? I know the judge ordered restitution in that case. I can see how the local police chiefs think this is the perfect guy to get involved with and the perfect guy to allow to go around soliciting money on their behalf. What can possible go wrong?
