Man Leaves Casino. Returns. Leaves Again, with Troopers

VALLEY FORGE PA – Label this case as “The Man Who Missed The Hint.”

It involves a 64-year-old eastern Montgomery County resident who was a Jan. 3 (2022; Monday) patron at the Valley Forge Casino Resort, 1160 First Ave. According to Pennsylvania State Police from the Troop K Barracks in Skippack, casino security guards found the man on the premises that day in what they believed to be an inebriated state.

The guards asked him to leave. Security even called a ride-sharing service, troopers wrote in a public information release, providing transportation that “took him away” to an unidentified destination.

Later that evening the man “appeared back at the casino again,” the release stated. Troopers were on duty there on behalf of the Pennsylvania Bureau of Gaming Enforcement. This time, they met with the patron.

Troopers alleged the man was “manifestly under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance to the degree” in which he “may have endangered himself or other persons or property,” or “annoy(ed) persons in his vicinity,” the release noted.

He received a non-traffic citation for “public drunkenness and similar misconduct.”
