The wife of a Dauphin County commissioner was charged after police say she became belligerent at the Hollywood Casino and had to be escorted out by security.
According to the Pennsylvania State Police Bureau of Gaming Enforcement, Maria Haste, 44, was charged with disorderly conduct and public drunkenness after the incident early Saturday.
She is the wife of Dauphin County Commissioner Jeff Haste.
Police say the incident at the East Hanover Township casino occurred like this:
Maria Haste was intoxicated and became verbally combative with a table-game dealer around 2 a.m. Saturday. When casino security asked her to leave, she became verbally combative with them as well, the police report states.
Security workers called state police and she was escorted outside, where she continued to be verbally combative and began a “tirade of obscene language” in front of other casino patrons.
She was taken into custody and cited with disorderly conduct and public drunkenness. She was transported to the Dauphin County Booking Center.
Neither Jeff Haste or Maria Haste could immediately be reached for comment.
