LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – A 49-year-old Leesport PA man, wanted on multiple charges under an arrest warrant held by the Lower Pottsgrove Police Department in what it called a road rage incident, was successfully captured Sunday (May 14, 2023), it said. He was jailed while awaiting a preliminary hearing.
The department reported fugitive Daniel Mullin was taken into custody by officers of the Bern Township, Berks County, police department. It did not offer details of the arrest. Mullin was transported Monday (May 15) by Lower Pottsgrove police to the Montgomery County Correctional Facility in Eagleville. Court documents indicate he was unable at the time to post a cash bail set at $1,000.
Mullin is scheduled for a preliminary hearing Tuesday (May 23) in the Pottstown courtroom of Magisterial District Justice Edward C. Kropp Sr. He faces a list of seven misdemeanor and other charges.

Leesport Man Sought on Warrant in Alleged Road Rage
LOWER POTTSGROVE PA – An arrest warrant was issued Friday (April 21, 2023) to Lower Pottsgrove police, who are looking for a 49-year-old Leesport PA man whom they allege was involved in a road rage incident.
The township police department claims Daniel Mullin was pulled over by officers March 31 (Friday) on U.S. Route 422 near Evergreen Road, and found to be driving under the influence of alcohol. They also reported he had become “involved in a road rage incident where he displayed a weapon,” but they did not indicate whether the incident occurred before or after his vehicle was stopped.
Mullin was charged with making terroristic threats, possessing instruments of crime, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, harassment using lewd or threatening language, disorderly conduct, driving under the influence with a high rate of alcohol, and carrying an open container of alcohol.
He apparently failed to appear for an April 21(Friday) preliminary hearing before Magisterial District Justice Edward C. Kropp Sr. in his Pottstown courtroom. Kropp issued the warrant the same day. Mullin is described as a white male, 6 feet in height, with blonde hair and hazel eyes. The department’s Crimewatch website has labeled him as a “most wanted” individual.
