A man charged vandalizing a Chester County officer’s car and harassing police during a six-minute long tirade following a traffic stop is moving his case towards a trial.
Matthew Walter faces 13 charges including multiple counts of harassment, making terroristic threats and vandalism for the incidents that took place on June 21.
The 36-year-old waived his formal arraignment in the Court of Common Pleas in Chester County on Thursday – sending the case to trial.
Upper Uwchlan Police say Walter threatened several officers following an early morning traffic stop near the Liberty Union Bar and Grill in Chester Springs, Pa. The entire exchange, which went on for several minutes, was caught on camera by witnesses and posted to the internet.
“You mother f***er. You pulled me over for a speeding ticket c***sucker. You’re a f***ing lying sack of s**t. Where’s the tape,” Walter can be heard shouting at officers. “Wait until I catch you without your f***ing uniform on. And don’t worry, I will. I know where you live, and you live, you sorry mother f***er.”
A short time after the outburst, police say they found Walter walking through the department’s parking lot. Officials say surveillance video showed the man vandalizing a police officer’s personal car with a rock.
Requests for comment from Walter’s attorney were not returned.
A trial date has yet to be set.
