These guys have the worst reputation. Zero tolerance and no discretion. Guess when speeding on 378 by Seidersville Road is the big deal there, this must make them orgasm.

They should fire that officer. I don't condone drug use, but this was a petty crime. The players were cooperative and weren't impaired. The players were even trying to follow their curfew regulations. This officer could put the EAGLES season in jeopardy. not to mention the teams desire to train at Lehigh at Lehgh in the future. Good common sense, a petty bust verses future revenue for Lower saucon and the surounding area.

Take your drugs and go home, practice on your own turf. Eagles suck anyway, nothing but a bunch of losers.

Think again. THe police office didn't put the Eagles and this idiots season in jeopardy. He did his job. This meathead decided to break the law. Put the responsibility where it belongs.

Yup. Give certain people "special treatment" even when they break the law. Good idea. This is an overpaid meathead who thought he was above the rules. Most likely, he never graduated from college with a real degree. He did nothing but play foooootball. Now he's going to pay for his underdeveloped intelligence.

Once again Lower Saucon proves that they don't need an excuse to pull over anyone that drives 378. It could be your son on a bike or even the chicken trying to cross the street. It's not about fighting crime, it's about money for the township. They all suk!!

Lower Saucon PD sucks AZZ.

This wanna-be officer from a po-dunk dept is just looking for glory. He should stick to licking nutz at a glory hole.

A dime bag??? Please. Throw it in the woods let em on their way.

This case will be dismissed, just like the majority of this depts arrests.

Oh and by the way, I hate the Eagles. Has
nothing to do with being a fan.
Sometimes cops need to use common sense. Then again the key word is 'cops', not geeks dressed up like cops.

The Morning Call of Allentown, PA reported that Philadelphia Eagles football defensive end Juqua Parker was arrested for smoking marijuana while a passenger in a van late at night during training camp in Northampton Co. Pennsylvania. "The van driver, Eagles starting left offensive guard Todd Herremans, 26, will be issued a citation for failing to obey a traffic control device and driving without his headlights on, police said."

"Officers said after stopping the vehicle, they detected a strong odor of burned marijuana coming from the van. Officers said they opened up the passenger's side door "for safety" and found a baggie containing "green/brown vegetable matter" under Parker's seat."

I don't understand why any driver, who is observed driving recklessly in a vehicle with the smell of burning intoxicants inside, would not be charged with DUI. Or at least investigated for it.

The black passenger was investigated by the police while the white driver, who was observed by police committing reckless driving actions in a vehicle with the heavy smell of an intoxicant inside, was given a citation and allowed to get back behind the wheel.

Congrats to the State Cop-wannabes in Lower Saucon who spend their days and nights trolling 378 and the backroads for all of those evil stop sign rollers and illegal left turners. The county is a safer place. But did you feel threatened by the black dude? Is that why you had to open the door? In the old days, a real cop would guide the obviously lost birds back to their nest. Today, it's the bust of the century...yeah, finally got one of those rich bastards! Hah! They think they can do what they want! Not in Lower Saucon...if LS didn't have a history of pulling people over for no reason, then it might make sense. But this township has to generate revenue and the only way to do that is write citations for every nickel & dime infraction it can witness. They can't solve the Charlotte Fimiano murder, but that dude who rolled the stop sign at the dead end will pay!

Of course it was Lower Saucon PD. They sit outside of Starter's Pub and wait to pull people over as they leave.

Why dont you go to work half stones , speed to get there, and then your boss says , your tagged for a drug test, then what go to 7-11 and drink 3 gallons of tea, only to come back as "diluted" then go back the next day and your busted, you speak from a paper azzz hole. They broke the rules baby, when you get miillons for playing a game there are rules and rightly so, are they any better than you, nope the crap brown just like you, wake up and smell the smoke!!
