PITTSTON, Pa. (AP) — Police have withdrawn a $700 ticket issued to a tractor-trailer promoting Donald Trump’s presidential campaign that got stuck on a Pennsylvania bridge.
The rig is owned by Scranton businessman Bob Bolus who has adorned it with the presumptive Republican nominee flashing a “V” for victory sign and Trump-inspired slogans including “Close the borders” and “Keep Mexican dope in Mexico.”
Pittston police cited the driver when she became stuck on a bridge with a 20-ton weight limit on March 30.
Police had alleged the truck was too heavy for the bridge, but Bolus brought proof that the truck weighs only 15 tons, so police withdrew the ticket before a local district judge on Tuesday.
The driver was relatively inexperienced and says she turned too sharply onto the corner of the bridge.
