An already tense picket line at a Wilmington shipping company turned into a dangerous situation on Thursday when a man drove his truck through police officers, leading to his arrest.
Wilmington Deputy Police Chief Bob Richter said that at about 9 a.m., an independent truck driver pulled into the entrance of xpedx at 613 Main Street where workers were picketing. When police stopped the man at the picket line, he sped up and drove forward, forcing one of the officers to hang on to the side of the truck to avoid falling.
“We don’t yet know why he did what he did,” said Richter. “It was dangerous. The officers could have been hit. One officer was near the truck and another was on the steps of the truck when he took off. He had to hold onto the side of the truck while it was driven. It was quite dangerous, and luckily no one was hurt.”
Department of Environmental Protection hearings officer Timothy Jones allowed the town’s motion to dismiss both appeals of the Wilmington High School project, ending the latest effort by residents to stop construction of the new school.
Jones made the ruling in a document sent to the involved parties dated Thursday, October 4.
“We obviously are pleased with the decision, and frankly, it is what we expected,” said Newhouse. “The Town has believed from the outset that these two appeals are absolutely without merit. Our legal counsel, technical advisers and town officials have been very diligent throughout the course of these appeals.”
