Flower has actually one-upped Lynch. Like Lynch, he likes to don bulletproof vests, open carries and digs those black gloves. But he also likes to ride a horse in his tactical gear.
The very strange office of Constable seems to be a magnet for wingnuts like West Easton Constable Tricia Mezzacappa, who was convicted in March of lying to Pennsylvania State Police in an attempt to frame a black neighbor.
Flower has her beat.
In 2014, he was charged with simple assault and terroristic threats. His wife confronted him about his drinking, and he allegedly responded by tackling and choking her. He copped a plea to disorderly and got off with probation.the tip of the iceberg. A court summary of criminal cases filed against Flower shows numerous charges filed against him since 2002 in Montgomery, Lehigh and Northampton Counties. These include harassment, possession of drug parapharnelia, false reports, theft, contempt of a PFA Order and even driving with suspended license.
No wonder he's on a horse!
He's been jailed as recently as 2019.
In addition to the criminal cases, he's been involved as a plaintiff or defendant in nine different Protection From Abuse cases since 2014. I think even his horse has filed.
According to his nomination petition, he has no sources of income and is "retired."
At age 39.
Like Lynch, he states in a podcast on his Facebook page that he has "first hand" knowledge of the insurrection on January 6.
