And the award for biggest jerk goes to …

A tow trucker driver from New York state has been charged with stealing a PS3, a PS3 controller and a PS2 game from a wrecked vehicle that he was towing. The vehicle was involved in an accident that killed an 11-month-old girl. The driver of the vehicle had lost control and rolled over on the I-78.

The police stated that Thomas J. Brunell III admited to entering the vehicle after he had towed the minivan from the scene and removed over $700 in video game equipment.

State police at the Perryville barracks towed the vehicle to headquarters and noticed that the video game equipment reported to belong to its owners was not inside.

Police then launched an investigation into the burglary of the minivan several days after the accident and arrested Brunell on burglary and theft charges Feb. 9. He was released pending a future court date.

Brunell has also been suspended from his job with Rossnagle’s Service Center after a year of service.
