Additional charges filed in ramming

By Staff | Dec 3, 2015

MONTGOMERY – Additional charges were filed last week against 32-year-old Lycoming County Prison inmate Cody Joe Dyer stemming from an incident in which he rammed two vehicles at or near the river lots here in Muncy Creek Township on the morning of Aug. 8, according to state police.

Police allege Dyer first rammed his pickup truck into a Chevrolet Cavalier soon after Melissa Harbst had arrived at the river lots in the vehicle, which is owned by her boyfriend, Danail Miller.

Harbst drove the car to the lots, but got out of it moments before Dyer allegedly rammed it. Dyer rammed the Cavalier a second time, hitting it with such force that it went partially down an embankment.

Miller already was at the river lots with two friends to go fishing. He called Harbst to the scene after Dyer had arrived and blocked him and his friends from leaving in his Dodge Spirit

After ramming the Cavalier twice, Dyer sped off with Miller following behind. However, as the two motorists approached Route 54, Dyer stopped as did Miller, police said. Dyer, of 268 Masser Road, Allenwood, then put his truck into reverse, ramming the front of Miller’s car, police said, adding that Miller got out of the car just before the collision. Dyer then sped off.

Jailed on charges stemming from a state police pursuit near Elimsport on Aug. 18, Dyer was arraigned Friday before District Judge Allen P. Page III on two counts each of simple assault and recklessly endangering, one count each of criminal mischief and disorderly conduct as well as six summary violations, including driving with a suspended license. He was recommitted in lieu of and additional $35,000 bail.
