Accused Drunk Driver Waives Hearing

A drunk driver who hit a parked car while on his way to do last-minute shopping on Christmas Eve has waived his preliminary hearing.

40-year-old Timothy McCormick of Bradford is accused of hitting an SUV that was parked on Chambers Street as it owner was picking up his family after services at the First United Methodist Church. He also almost hit children on a sidewalk near Congress and West Corydon streets.

During the traffic stop McCormick first told Officer Matthew Guthrie he loved him, but then said, “I am going to kick your f***ing ass.” Papers filed in District Judge Dominic Cercone’s office say downtown surveillance cameras caught the hit and run.

McCormick is free on unsecured bail.
