WASHINGTON COUNTY, Pa. - A man facing two counts of vehicular homicide charges in the deaths of two young Washington County men was arrested Friday on drug charges.
Channel 11’s Cara Sapida reported that Jordan Jacobson was taken into custody on charges of selling heroin.
Jacobson was out on bond in the deaths of Michael “Dillon” Gregg, 22, of Bulger, and Joseph Bowland, 20, of McDonald.
As he was brought into the magistrate’s office Friday, the father of one of the victims was there asked Jacobson, “Can I get the door for you?"
Jacobson was driving a vehicle that crashed around 1:30 a.m. on July 27, 2013 on Joffre Bulger Road in Smith Township, police said.
Jacobson was charged by state police with homicide by vehicle while driving under the influence, but the DUI portion of the charges was later dropped.
Prosecutors dropped the charges because they said Jacobson was not drunk, had no alcohol in his system, and they can’t prove if there were any drugs because police didn’t request a legal blood draw that night. [More HERE.]
Family members of Gregg and Bowland said they have felt cheated by the justice system.
