Columbia Man Issued 3 Citations for Separate Protest Incidents at Pipeline Location | Lancaster County District Attorney's Office

A Columbia man has been cited three times for separate protest incidents in March and June at pipeline-construction locations near his home.

Daniel K. Forry, 77, of Prospect Road, was cited with summary counts of harassment, disorderly conduct, and obedience to authorized persons directing traffic.

West Hempfield Township police mailed citations to Forry on July 3.

The citations regard March 16, March 31, and June 2, incidents on Indian Head Road, where constructions crews were working.

Specifically, the citations involve interactions Forry had with flaggers, contracted for traffic control.

- On March 16: Forry refused to comply with a flagger's directive that he not pass because workers were on the roadways. Forry inched forward in his vehicle and tapped the flagger with his front bumper. He was cited with disorderly conduct.

- On March 16 and March 31: Forry refused to comply with a flagger's directive, yelling at the flagger, and at one point getting out of his vehicle and nearly face-to-face with the flagger while yelling. Forry did this "because he does not agree with the pipeline," an officer writes in a citation for harassment.

- On June 2: Forry again refused to comply with a flagger's directive, striking the flagger while attempting to drive around him. He was cited with violating obedience to authorized persons directing traffic.

No one was injured in the incidents.

  2. Oh? And physically assault people with your vehicle as well? Way to go to the flagger for turning him in.

  3. I agree he has a right to stand up for what he believes in it is still a free country so they say

  4. Way to show your displeasure. Try to run over some guy or gal just trying to make a living by directing traffic.

  5. Hempfield school board member. If you don’t vote the way he does, be careful walking to your car in the parking lot

  6. 77 years old? I wonder if he is suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's? Probably shouldn't be running a car, much less helping run a school. I don't care what someone feels about the pipeline - that is no excuse to assault a worker with a car. And the fact this has to be stated is sad.

    2. First, wrong on all accounts. And notice how I never stated my position on the pipeline? That is beside the point.

      And since you love to abuse your caps lock, I'll type this in a way you hopefully can comprehend (but I have my doubts): YOU DON'T HIT PEOPLE WITH YOUR CAR! NUFF SAID!
