Nazareth Boro Council Member Gets No Special Treatment in Traffic Court
I covered this matter because of rumors that Donello had tried to strong-arm Schwab.
"Don't you know who I am?" Donello reportedly asked several times.
After the plea, Donello flew out of the courtroom and returned later, still looking pretty angry.
When I asked Officer Schwab to confirm whether Donello had really been throwing his weight around, he smiled but declined comment. So I'll never know for sure.
On Monday, charges were filed against a juvenile probation officer who used his official position for his own personal benefit. Donello did not go as far as that, even if the rumors I heard are true. Still, his behavior in the courtroom convinced me that he thinks he's very special.
And he is. Just as special as everyone else.
Fortunately, no one was injured in the accident.
