Police ID disgruntled man who rammed Pa. dealer

Police say a Pennsylvania man rammed his pickup into a Dodge dealership because he was upset that a roadside assistance program didn't include sending someone to help when he locked his keys in the truck.

Fifty-three-year-old Robert Snatchko Jr. was arrested Tuesday after police say he slammed his Dodge Ram 1500 pickup into Vasko Dodge in Peters Township.

Police say Snatchko yelled obscenities in a phone call with the dealership Monday, then called back to threaten to crash the truck into the glass-fronted building.

Police say Snatchko followed through about 9 a.m. Tuesday. Nobody was hurt.

Snatchko doesn't have a listed phone. Court records don't list an attorney for him.

Owner William Vasko tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (http://bit.ly/tOW7Cz) that Snatchko's arrest "says all that needs to be said about this."
