Trucker arrested for fuel leak

| 11/8/2001

A truckdriver was arrested this past weekend in New Jersey after more than 100 gallons of diesel fuel leaked from the back of his trailer. The leak flooded a parking lot and caused police to close several nearby roads.

Allegedly, the police got their man after following the trail of fuel to Champion Trucking in Gloucester Township, where they arrested Ralph DiFabio Jr. Two empty 55-gallon fuel drums were found in the back of DiFabio's truck, according to published reports.

DiFabio was charged with risking widespread injury or damage, criminal mischief, and driving with a suspended license. He was released after posting $15,000 bail.
