    Police say a man rammed his pickup truck into a southwestern Pennsylvania Dodge dealership because he was upset that a roadside assistance program didn't include sending someone to help when he locked his keys in the truck.

    Online court records don't list an attorney for 53-year-old Robert Snatchko Jr., of Oakdale, who was arrested Tuesday after police say he slammed his Dodge Ram 1500 pickup into Vasko Dodge in Peters Township. Snatchko doesn't have a listed phone.

    Police say Snatchko yelled obscenities in a phone call with the dealership on Monday, then called back to threaten to crash the truck into the glass-fronted building.

    Police say Snatchko followed through about 9 a.m. Tuesday. Nobody was hurt.

    Owner William Vasko tells the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that Snatchko's arrest "says all that needs to be said about this."
