CUMBERLAND COUNTY — Newville Police have charged a 20-year-old Allegheny County man accused of fleeing from police who were trying to stop him from performing stunts on a dirt bike earlier this year.
John Grambo, of Coraopolis, has been identified as the driver of a KTM dirt bike that was seen doing wheelies and brake checks in the first block of North High Street at 9:40 a.m. on Feb. 16, police say.
An officer who saw Grambo performing the stunts attempted to perform a traffic stop, but Grambo accelerated toward the intersection of North High and West Main Streets, nearly crashing into a truck as he turned onto Main Street, police say.
The dirt bike was last seen heading west on West Main Street at a high rate of speed.
Grambo was identified as the driver after a police investigation.
He was charged on Feb. 20, police say.
