WOODBURY — A Monroeville man was denied reduction of his $50,000 bail Friday on charges he crashed a vehicle he allegedly carjacked into a Pennsylvania State Police car that had pursued him into Gloucester County on Oct. 18.
The crash on Glassboro Road in Wenonah with Scott J. Allen, 45, at the wheel, allegedly also caused damage to private property and a county road sign, authorities said.
Allen was charged with aggravated assault against the two troopers in the car, as well as criminal mischief for the sign damage.
Assistant Gloucester County Prosecutor Joseph More cited Allen’s nine felony convictions and a “record of municipal charges” in opposing a reduction his bail. In all, Allen has been arrested 27 times.
