Army Vet Jailed for Christmas in PA for "wrong turn"?
A decorated Army veteran, who has never been in jail before, has been
behind bars since Monday, and looks to be spending Christmas there as
"It's been quite an experience that, to me, is very unjustified," Doug Madison told Channel 4 Action News' Jim Parsons
Madison is scheduled to be in the Greene County Prison until Wednesday.
Madison told Parsons he was driving a chemical tanker from South
Carolina to Halliburton's plant near Carmichaels, Pa., on Monday when
his GPS directed him off Interstate 79 and onto country roads that have a
10-ton weight limit.
Madison's truck weighed three times that.
He was cited by a Pennsylvania State Police trooper for two traffic violations that carry a total fine of $12,000.
Ok, this is just wrong at any level. This is a sad state of affairs that Pennsylvania cannot find it's way through to give this Army Veteran a break. It seems like an honest mistake.
