An Easton man was not happy that he’d just failed the test to get his driver’s license.

And according to information provided by State Police in Schuylkill Haven, the Northampton County man started to take his frustrations out on the person who failed him.

Just before noon on Saturday at the Driver’s License Center outside Schuylkill Haven, 22-year-old Gregory Waller learned that he hadn’t passed the test to get his license. When he found out, he “rapidly” opened the door to his vehicle. When he did this, the door hit the person testing him, Matthew Heins, of Coal Township.

Police are charging Waller with physical harassment.

    This eas a bullshit headline for a lame story. This site looks absolutely horrible online too. Looks ok on a phone but omg it’s a nightmare of a mess on a computer. Looks worse than a teens room that wasn’t taught to clean, put things away, and organize.

      Does it look better offline?

      Appreciate the comments on the layout, especially of the mobile site. We’ve been working on that. And honestly, our desktop organization of the site is a bit scrambled but things are neatly tucked in categories. If we “put things away”, no one would find the articles.

      Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

        Honest criticism is 👍. Truth being said That we must use baby philosophy– If it stinks change it. Truth is just look at the site on your phone and stop complaining.

          We’ve considered a theme change at times, just haven’t gotten around to looking for a new one. We kinda like the “Drudge” theme look. It gives us some flexibility. Discussions are always happening behind the scenes on how to improve the user experience.

          The reader’s critique of the story is their own. Can’t make everyone happy all the time. The story is what the story is. Police reported it. We found it interesting. Guess the reader is sorry that the driver’s test examiner didn’t get pummeled or something? Getting hit with a car door can hurt. Remember slamming my finger in the door once about 10 years ago and it’s still swollen a little bit.
