Two men were cited following an incident in Tamaqua on June 8.
Police were dispatched to Mountain Avenue at 8 p.m., in the area of the East End Playground, for a disturbance, where they were met by Francesco Pavia, 42. Pavia told officer a gray Subaru had passed him and his children, traveling at a high rate of speed.
According to Pavia, he yelled and the driver stopped the car and then began cursing at him in front of the children. He also claimed the driver pushed him.
The Subaru was parked further along the street. When the officer approached, a younger male appeared and began screaming at Pavia, who screamed back.
After the officer ordered both men to desist, he spoke to the younger man, Christopher M. Boylan, 20, of 616 Arlington St.
Boylon said he was driving down the street and stopped when Pavia tried to flag him down. Thinking the man needed help, Boylan stopped. Pavia then began yelling at him, but he couldn't understand what he was saying "due to his strong Italian accent." He claimed the older man reached in his car, scratching his neck, then slapped at the car window.
A partial hand print was observed on the Subaru's window.
Both men were cited for disorderly conduct.
