55-year-old John Crocker of Bradford got into an argument with his daughter after she told him she was going to take him back to Erie so he could turn himself in. He got out of the car and hid from police for about half an hour until he was taken into custody. Crocker told police later that he would rather be in jail than in the parole program. He is on parole after serving time for drug charges.
He will be sentenced on December 18 in McKean County Court.
