Retired Philly cop pulls gun on motorist in Upper Darby, police say

UPPER DARBY, Pa. - October 28, 2013

The Delaware County Daily Times reports 79-year-old Roscoe Campbell was arrested shortly after the incident at a Wawa store in Upper Darby about 2:30 a.m. Saturday.

That's when Campbell allegedly demanded $300 from a motorist who, Campbell claimed, had blocked him in. Campbell allegedly told the other man he would be towed unless he paid Campbell $300 for a violation.

Police say Campbell took off when the motorist threatened to call Upper Darby police. Police were able to find Campbell at home based on a license plate number the victim recorded.

Online court records don't list an attorney for Campbell who faces a preliminary hearing Wednesday.
