It’s starting to look like alcohol and car wrecks are becoming a thing in Haddon Township.
Several residents sent us emails asking about an off-duty Haddon Township cop being involved in an accident. Some writers seemed to believe the township was trying to hide it.
The only reason this is news is because by now most reading this are aware of the saga of Paul Doherty, the Township Commissioner who also happens to be a prosecutor in multiple municipalities who drove into the back of a car and left the scene of the accident.
The Bob & Steve Show has learned the residents who sent us the above mentioned emails were correct that an off duty Haddon Township police officer was involved in a car accident in a neighboring town. One source said the officer’s female passenger was injured. A second source said the female passenger suffered a fractured pelvis, but the exact injury has not yet been confirmed. Both sources claim alcohol was involved, that the officer refused the breathalyzer and one source claims the officer is now in a 30-day rehabilitation program.
This story is developing and many questions are left unanswered. I sent an email to the mayor and he did respond with, “Steve: An accident is being investigated by the Camden County Prosecutor’s office. At this time, I am sorry but I cannot comment.”
Given that I have received that response from Mayor Randall Teague, I believe it is safe to say Haddon Township residents should be happy to know their mayor is not trying to cover anything up. Frankly, simply stating there is an investigation is about as transparent as the mayor can be. He deserves credit for saying more than the standard “we can’t comment” garbage.
So, to those who have been emailing us with the belief your government has been trying to cover something up. You’re wrong. The incident is under investigation.
