Pa. teen councilman in trouble with the law

ALBURTIS, Pa. - October 17, 2012

Police said 19-year-old Alburtis Borough councilman Kyle Bower stole three campaign signs from the front of a home on Oct. 4, then drove his car through a soybean field and left it there with two bottles of beer inside.

He faces a felony charge of agricultural crop destruction, which carries a maximum 10-year sentence, as well as various misdemeanor offenses.

Back in January 2012, Bower took his seat on the council. Earlier that same day, he was sentenced to four years of probation after pleading guilty to misdemeanors for throwing a brick through his ex-girlfriend's window and slipping out of handcuffs during an alcohol-related arrest.
