69 News week in review

It's time to take a look back at the stories making headlines this week in the 69 News Week In Review.

Monday, startling allegations were revealed during a termination hearing for a Bethlehem cop charged with driving drunk while off duty.

During the City Council hearing, officials testified Officer Richard Hoffman had spent all night bar hopping with fellow off-duty cops, even though he had to work the next morning.

Officials said Hoffman was arrested last August after his car crashed into a series of parked vehicles.


He has been on administrative leave since.

Council has yet to make a decision.

On Tuesday, the case was closed against a Hamburg Area High School quarterback who hit another player in the head with a helmet.

Authorities dropped assault and disorderly conduct charges against Joe Cominsky.

Police filed the charges after Cominsky ripped off the helmet of an Annville Cleona player and hit him in the head twice during a game in September.

Cominsky's attorney said his client was defending another teammate.

Wednesday, arrest warrants were issued for six Reading Parking Authority attendants accused of pocketing parking fees.

Officials say the suspects stole tens of thousands of dollars in just one year.

The attendants are also accused of giving out fake tickets to drivers.

On Thursday, the former director of a prestigious private school in Allentown was arrested for allegedly sexually assaulting an 11-year-old boy.

Officials said 55-year-old Thomas Curran assaulted the boy multiple times inside Curran's New Jersey home.

Curran was the Middle School Director at the Swain School in Allentown from 2000 to 2005.

Friday, two Kutztown University football players face criminal charges for a fraternity brawl that left two people hospitalized.

The fight happened Feb. 23 during a fraternity party near Bloomsburg University.

One of the students injured in the fight remains in critical condition.

Kutztown University suspended four players for their alleged roles in the brawl.
