Juveniles will face disorderly conduct charges for apparent joyride in Lower Macungie Township, police say.
Three Macungie-area teens recently were charged by police for making applesauce. Of course, there is no such criminal charge, but that was the essence of their actions as they tossed apples at objects from a moving motor vehicle in Lower Macungie Township Nov. 9, according to state police at Fogelsville. Officially, the charge was disorderly conduct, according to the report. The three juveniles, ages 15-17, drove through the area of Tuscany Drive about 8 p.m., police said. They threw apples from the windows of the vehicle at unspecified objects. Police did not say whether anything was struck or how much damage was done. Charges are pending in district court before District Judge Michael Faulkner of Upper Macungie Township.

Eleven vehicles are hit within three blocks, police say.
It must have been great fun for a time. Lobbing eggs at vehicles only to have them splatter like bursting fireworks. In fact, it must have been so much fun, that throwing eggs at just one car wouldn't do. In all, yolk ran from 11 vehicles in the early hours of July 3 in the 2900 through 3200 blocks of Sequoia Drive in Lower Macungie Township, according to state police at Fogelsville. But the fun stopped for three young men accused of throwing the eggs. Police have charged two underage boys and Braden Lawrence Rikli, 18, of Emmaus with disorderly conduct associated with tossed eggs. The incidents weren't much fun for the victims, either, although police reported that there was no permanent damage to any of the vehicles. The above arrest …

Police say he cursed and spit inside restaurant.
Something wasn't sitting right recently with a patron in an Upper Milford Township restaurant. Was it the food, the service or the company? Police weren't specific, but they said an Allentown man began cursing and spitting about 9:20 p.m. Feb. 14 inside Pickles Steak House at 3941 Chestnut St. His night probably didn't improve much after that either. Joshua T. Sewell, 27, of the 1300 block of 10th Street was charged with disorderly conduct for his actions, according to state police at Fogelsville. In another Upper Milford incident, police said a patron inside a township social club wasn't much happier two days earlier. It's unlikely his victim was either. Police are searching for a man who arrived at the club in Vera Cruz and grabbed the …
