Woman Hit Garbage Man, Told Him 'I Drive a Range Rover,' Police Say

Lower Saucon Township Police say Sarah Hart, of the 3500 block of North Drive, ordered a garbage man to pick up her trash with his teeth before pulling him from his truck and hitting him.

A Lower Saucon Township woman has been charged with assaulting a garbage man, according to township police, who also said that she attempted to humiliate the man.

In a news release, police said Sarah Hart, of the 3500 block of North Drive, struck the man hard enough to break off a piece of one of his molars.

The alleged incident occurred after the garbage truck the man was riding in initially passed Hart's residence, police said.

Police said Hart didn't have her garbage out when the truck operated by Riess Bros. Hauling passed by on Wednesday afternoon, and that Hart called out for the truck to return to pick it up.

According to authorities, Hart then brought her garbage to the end of her driveway, where she allegedly threw it on the ground and told the garbage man to "pick it up with your teeth because you are a garbage man, you drive a garbage truck and I drive a Range Rover."

Police said the man then attempted to avoid further confrontation by leaving, but Hart pulled him from his truck and "hit him on the left side of his face."

An officer later observed redness on the man's face, police said.

Authorities added that he was "still attempting to leave when Hart blocked the truck with her Range Rover."

Hart will be charged with simple assault and harassment, police said.

HA! NJ here- this story is flying all over out Patches too. I'm pretty sure NJ/NY don't like people who make judgmental and nasty comments either. Catch my drift?
Liz Fass May 17, 2013 at 04:39 PM
Now even people in Bergen County NJ know how stupid and rude she is!
Liz Fass May 17, 2013 at 04:40 PM
We don't want her here in NJ either!
Liz Fass May 17, 2013 at 04:42 PM
Really well said!

The company's Twitter account @PatchTweets just tweeted it out to every Patch site in the country, so I think you got even more than you wanted. Haha! -Andy, Chicago Patches

I like Wiggy's idea. The sister needs to eat some humble pie for a while. Picking up poo on the rail trail seems fitting. Shameful behavior like hers should be rewarded with community service.

Sable! Deep man... My head is swimming. Every now and then you just have to think to yourself; "hmmm, maybe I should refrain from posting my thoughts right now."

Sue what a sweet idea!
Bob Linney May 17, 2013 at 05:43 PM
Mary Anne, I take umbrage with your female chauvinistic comment. This sort of sexism is just as distasteful as "the male counterpart." Furthermore, I am perplexed why you would suggest so many unfounded excuses for what is inexcusable behavior.

PS not all SV implant housewives are like that, just mainly the psychos.

Your a mean one Mrs. Grinch....

Maybe more garbage needs to be dumped in her driveway. A lot more.
joe schmoe May 17, 2013 at 11:40 PM
I know this woman! She is the BIGGEST snob ever, and her husband is even worse! Word on the street is she is sleeping around in Florida when she isn't in PA. Or maybe she is using those implants as a flotation device....

Thank you Lord for karma! When people are horrid to others the world eventually catches up with them and gives it back, ten fold! This lady has a well deserved reputation, and a lot of innocent victims of her undeserved venom, bigoted demeaning, ignorant assumptions and lack of respect for hardworking people, disregard of feelings of those less fortunate, envy of those who have more or appear to have more....the list goes on........it all comes back to bite you. Ha, hope you feel all the hurt and pain you have tried to inflict on those you deem inferior.......I hope your community service involves a day as a trash collector, a day as a fast food worker, a day with Turning Point, a day with an animal shelter, a day in a soup kitchen, a day in a food bank, several days cleaning potty platz at Musikfest, and a few days cleaning the toilets at Neiman Marcus in a uniform. Those experiences will show you how you are just another person. You are welcome to be grateful for the blessings you have, but you have no right to claim superiority to the rest of the human race. SHAME on you.

Charles, Commenter and Liz, I apologize for wanting to send her back to NJ. You folks get a bad rap. But I do appreciate the pension money you give me every month. Thank you!

Mr. Linny, I beg to differ. I made no excuses for this woman. I simply pointed out that she is likely one of the many housewives that you hear about in reports such as on 60 minutes. There is an epidemic out there of woman trying to have it all and being unable to do so, turn to the drugs that alter their behaivior. Often times these drugs make a person aggressive and competitive, just like a man (it is called testosterone). In a man, this is normal behavior, in a woman it is not. I do not know this person, but if the reports from her neighbors are true, she is fortunate that she does not know me. As I give as good as I get, from a woman or a man. Hoping that she gets help is for the sake of her children. Growing up with a mother like that can be life altering. I assure you, I am not a female chauvinist. I have been happily married for 44 years, have raised 3 respectful sons and one daughter. I also prefer male dogs, so maybe you are right, I could be a chauvinist, LOL

I love this, word on the street, I get the phrase when people live closely together, but my imagine of North Drive is that the houses are all about an acre apart. I have 5 neighbors, but I could not tell you one word of gossip about any of them. Perhaps this lady is out and about on other streets.
Mary Anne Looby May 18, 2013 at 01:51 AM
I use the DD drive through. What happens inside that store? Maybe I should drop in and watch the antics. Oh, gee no, I seem to have better things to do.
Mary Anne Looby May 18, 2013 at 01:53 AM
If memory serves, one of the trash men is deaf. Maybe all her rantings fell on deaf ears, although if he was alone, I guess not. We usually have two people in the truck.
DaisyBear May 18, 2013 at 03:01 AM
The sad thing is, she probably doesn't think she did anything wrong. She's also probably making excuses and blaming the kind man she assaulted!
Dave Wimmer May 18, 2013 at 04:56 PM
Sarah Hart needs to have a HEART for these hard working guys.I would imagine she is a newbe to our area and maybe should get her butt out of bed earlier to put the garbage out on time!!
Gerry Kranz May 18, 2013 at 11:39 PM
She probably makes her husband wear a ball gag and chains around the house.
Sharon Kranz May 19, 2013 at 12:26 AM
just like I do to you Gerry?
j p castle May 20, 2013 at 07:29 PM
Truck should have picked her up and threw her in with the rest of the garbage. Don't care how much money you have, trash is always trash, and now she proved thats what she is.
j p castle May 20, 2013 at 07:45 PM
If she was from ny or nj, she would be picking up the garbage with HER teeth....in her hand! And I would love to watch that!
Angela May 20, 2013 at 10:03 PM
Disgusting! I hope she is mortified at her actions! I feel bad for her neighbors and family! I agree that the reiss bros are super nice and extremely hard workers!
Lindalou May 21, 2013 at 11:13 AM
She needs to get over herself, do you own the range roover or do you lease it? These kind of people are no better than anybody else!
Susan May 22, 2013 at 03:15 AM
The garbage man she attacked is a hard working man who happens to work 6 days a week to support his wife and two small children. Class can't be bought, she is the definition of trash!
SV Soccer Dad May 30, 2013 at 03:38 PM
Garbage man now drives Range Rover....
