Charges dropped against constable accused in harassment case

HAZLETON, Pa. - Charges have been dropped against a Pennsylvania constable accused of harassment.

Hazleton police had accused David Kneller of wrongly arresting two women without the necessary warrants, then making sexually suggestive comments about them.

Another constable, John Sarge, was also accused in the incident that took place last April. In September, all charges except one count of conspiracy against Sarge were dropped.

Kneller was previously ordered to trial on charges of harassment and official oppression - the unlawful use of police power - but all charges were withdrawn last week.
