Limerick Township Police responded to 185 incidents between July 30 and August 6, 2012.
On July 30, police responded to a call from the Texas Roadhouse restaurant at 70 Buckwalter Road, Royersford.
Sergeant Paul Marchese, assisted by Upper Providence and Royersford police, reported that a domestic disturbance occurred between 21-year-old Archie Davis and his wife.
Davis and his wife were allegedly arguing inside the restaurant, then left the restaurant and were arguing in the parking lot. Two other customers told police that they observed Davis reportedly "pushing [his wife] around." The restaurant manger told police that Davis was allegedly yelling and cursing.
Davis was cited for disorderly conduct and released.
On August 5 at about 9:00 p.m., Sergeant Bob Matalavage responded to a call at a home on Limerick Center Road. The homeowner and a visitor met Matalavage outside and told police that Scott Glenn Storms, 37, of Elkins Park, had allegedly burned his girlfriend with a lit cigarette.
The homeowner told Matalavage that Storms had left the house after the police were called.
While Matalavage was interviewing the female victim and photographing injuries on her shoulder, the homeowner told him that Storms had returned and was in a work shed on the property.
Matalavage located Storms and advised him he was going to be arrested for domestic violence. Storms allegedly tried to escape from Matalavage and was tazed twice by Officer Chris Nestler.
Storms was arrested and charged with domestic assault and arraigned at district court, and bail was set at $3000.
Police also handled a second domestic incident on August 4. Officer Christopher Wienczek responded to a call from a female victim who reported to police that her stepfather, 51-year-old Bryan W. Lampe, of Limerick, "had threatened to kill her and was on his way to her residence" and had also allegedly threatened to kill her boyfriend. The victim also told police that her stepfather was "known to carry firearms."
While Wienczek was interviewing the caller, he heard a vehicle approaching at a "high rate of speed." Wienczek reported that the caller identified the driver as Lampe. When Lampe pulled into the parking lot, Wienczek said, he refused to stop his vehicle and allegedly nearly hit Wienczek with his car before continuing out of the lot at a high rate of speed.
Officer John Henry, responding as backup for Wienczek, blocked Lampe from leaving the parking area. Wienczek reported that Lampe allegedly almost sturck Henry's patrol car head-on but stopped, then "revved his engine and lurched the car forward as to give the impression he was going to ram into Henry's car."
After Lampe stopped the car, Wienczek ordered him out of the car. Lampe allegedly had the odor of alcohol on him and agreed to submit to a blood test.
Wienczek arrested Lampe, and he was charged with driving under the influence, harrassment, terroristic threats, aggravated assault and reckless endangerment. The female victim requested a protection from abuse order.
Lampe was arraigned and posted $250,000 bail, and is awaiting a preliminary hearing.
