PSP Charge West Easton Constable With False Statements

Mezzacappa in happier times
On June 18, West Easton Constable Tricia Mezzacappa was among those who visited a Bethlehem City Council to slam an ill-considered ordinance suppressing free speech. "Bernie O'Hare is a piece of shit," she declaimed. "He's a disgusting, gruesome creature." In that vein, I think it's time for me to be disgusting and gruesome and let you in on what she failed to say. She's been charged with making false statements to the Pennsylvania State Police (PSP).

The charges stem from an incident back in February, when she called PSP to complain about a neighbor. From what I've been able to gather, she told authorities she had been forced to fire her weapon. If you ever want police to arrive at your home quickly, say something like that. When troopers arrived, however, they discovered she had lied to them. Her pea-shooter was confiscated, presumably to conduct tests. Charges were filed in late May, and she failed to accept a summons until June 19, the day after her diatribe.

This is by no means the first time Mezzacappa has been taken to task for dishonesty. In 2014, Judge Michael Koury ordered her to pay $67,000 for defaming a "disgusting, gruesome creature."

Making false statements to the police is a third degree misdemeanor, with a penalty of up to a year in prison and a fine of up to $2,500.

She is represented by prominent Allentown Attorney John Waldron.

Her preliminary hearing is scheduled July 22, 9:30 AM, before Magisterial District Judge Richard Yetter.

Updated Sunday, 6/30, 2:40 pm:
An online petition started by Linda Bank seeks Mezzacappa's removal from her elected office of Constable. It is virtually impossible to remove an elected official from office, but conviction of an infamous crime is one way to do it.

Everyone knows Mezzalooneytunes is mentally unstable and a classic example of a Persecuted Personality Disorder. When she finally goes too far you will NOT hear her neighbors saying they are surprised. She needs every weapon she owns permanently removed from her. Maybe West Easton residents can petition for a recall and strip her of that constable title. A constable facing charges like this and local news media doesn't report it? WTF?

Bernie O'Hare said...

The local media has not reported it bc it just became pubic Although charges were filed in late May, the matter was not listed on Pa. Docket Sheets until the end of this week fir some reason. I assume it is bc they were waiting for her to be served the summons first, but it could just be simple delay.

I agree a constable being charged with false statements to the PSP is newsworthy.

I hope the hearing at Judge Yetter's court draws a more refined crowd than did Justice Kavanaugh's hearing in the Senate.....

Sandra Weiss said...

Take all her toys away and prosecute her She is a Constable LMAO and she gives Constables a bad name. And she is thriving on all the attention Judge Koury was not tolerating her antics and I hope Magistrate Yetter does the same.Mentally unstable with a permit to carry She is a accident waiting to happen

She's no Kavanaugh, but has a well-earned reputation for dishonesty. My guess is she will waive the preliminary and seek ARD. She actually belongs in mental health court.

Does Bethlehem City have anything to do with the real news in the story?

Someone who is a piece of shit has no qualification to adjudicate someone else of being a piece of shit. What was she thinking?

LVCI said...

I'm not sure how we'd word it but what we need in the United States is a "pain in the ass" law.

Bernie O'Hare said...

At common law, Mezzacraycray would be considered a common scold, or communis rixatrix. Punishment was the cucking stool, lol.

Interesting said...

If Mezzacappa spent her time trying to become a productive citizen instead of trying to destroy everything around her I might have sympathy for her. She seems insanely jealous of others success and recognition. All that energy and she wastes it on windmills and hate. So sad. She needs to reconnect with nature and find tranquility camping in the woods. Pet a bear or something.

Bernie, there was no reason Bethlehem city council had to let her continue with her co9mments. I think any governmental body can end your comments if you make obscene personal attacks. Particularly when they have nothing to do with anyone but a private citizen.

First DisGrace, now Mezzacappa. All we need now is the Blog Mentor.

Lol, I think she took them by surprise. Name-calling does not bother me. Consider the source. When she accuses me of crimes, then I get concerned.

@3:42 It's called Karma, Tricia. You are an insufferable psycho.

Linda Bank said...

I always supported this young woman on Facebook's 'easton, pennsylvania... a conservative alternative' group. I now believe she has been lying to all of us. After contacting somone who provided a history and verafying what I was told, I realise she should not be a state constable. I'm asking everyone to sign my petition.

Bernie O'Hare said...

Linda, I signed your petition. I agree with your sentiments. Unfortunately, there are no recall provisions under Pa law and the governor has no authority to remove Mezzacappa unless she is impeached and convicted. She can be removed after conviction of an infamous nation is crime. She wil almost certainly apply for ARD. Hopefully, her resignation will be a condition.

someone just needs to run against her the next time she's up for re-election

Anonymous said...

The election for constable in West Easton won't be until November 2021. There are already residents wanting to run just to see her gone. The only time you will see whoever is elected is at the polls. They have no desire to act like a policeman and won't be harassing residents. "Trigger" Tricia should resign now and avoid another embarrassing election result.

Meanwhile a Sasqwatch Bigfoot was sighted in Palmer.

I hope the West Easton Police Department is up and running soon. Then they'll have the power to remove Mezzacrazy from council meetings quickly, and keep a close eye on her for neighborhood disputes. They should also clock the time they waste on her, for reports to council.

Bernie O'Hare said...

WEPD is going to have its hands full. They will have to be fair to her, too.

He escaped and will be back at midnight.

Tricia is prejudice, psychotic and a menace to west Easton. Under those labels she should NOT be allowed to carry a weapon nor hold a title as state constable. She needs to be stripped of her duties. I wrote to you Mr O'hare before this came public but decided against sending until after the hearing. The person she falsely accused has held a job since age 15 and is well respected by his friends family and employer and was attacked only because of race. Her false accusation could have been detrimental to this young man and his family. I'm anxious to see the day this crazed menace no longer holds the title as state constable and pray she sees her day in court.

She hasn't!!! When she stops it will stop. Get her help. Suffer my ass. She needs to be reprimanded for her actions. Psycho

Why does the County let People like this woman be a Constable if she's been cited & convicted of crimes. Just my thought but I think she should be removed as a Constable until all of her Court & Fines & Convictions are served in full or resolved. Than after that if she wants she can re-run for Constable in the Future. After we all make mistakes but we all must suffer the bad results & learn & move on from them

Have none of you no sympathy for her?
She has been a failure in every career path taken, in the shadow of not one, but two very successful sisters. She is obviously a lonely person who has never had a loving relationship and has no friends. She is approaching retirement age in 10 years without having put much into Social Security and is looking at a only a small check when she applies. She gets free medical care because of her lack of income, which has to hard for an ultra-right conservative. She has no children that will care for her in her old age. With the recent loss of her beloved mother there is nobody left to pay her bills, or bail her out of the trouble she gets herself in. With no state funding, any mental help she needs is not available. She is simply lashing out and her anger at society is plea for help.
Leave this poor young woman alone!

She'll be left alone when she stops. Her lie had the potential to send a completely innocent person to jail. She needs to held accountable for her actions. She needs to be to a stop!

Bernie , this ladies elected position mean nothing.she can’t work for magistrate,or carry a firearm under her elected position. She is not certified under PCCD rules . In her case ,it’s only a title ,she can’t do anything. If she does it’s a issue of any citizen. .
