police officer issuing ticketA pro-family activist is concerned that The Keystone State may be turning into a police state.

A 19-year-old woman living in York County, a suburb of Harrisburg, recently became the first person in Pennsylvania cited for violating Democrat Governor Tom Wolf's stay-at-home order. She was given a non-traffic citation for basically "going for a ride."

Diane Gramley, president of the American Family Association of Pennsylvania, says the state police officer told the woman he pulled her over because her rear tail light was out.

"During the encounter he asked her whether she was aware of the governor's stay-at-home order, and she acknowledged that she was, but she didn't think that it would impact just going out for a drive," Gramley relays. "She was in the car by herself; there was no issue with social distancing. And she was issued a ticket for over $200."

Gramley, Diane (AFA of Pennsylvania)So the family activist thinks the governor should clarify what the stay-at-home order means.

"Does that mean that we can't go out for a Sunday drive? Does that mean we have to have papers telling them or informing the state police where we're going and how long we're going to be gone," Gramley wonders. "We need clarification."

The York County woman has already indicated she plans to fight the citation.
