Ex-W. Pa. star Herb Pope wanted as trial no-show

BEAVER, Pa. (AP) — A former western Pennsylvania high school basketball star who played at Seton Hall is wanted on a bench warrant for failing to appear at a non-jury trial on terroristic threat and public drunkenness for allegedly pulling a gun on a bartender on New Year's Eve.

The Beaver County Times ( ) reports Common Pleas Judge Richard Mancini issued the warrant Tuesday after 24-year-old Herb Pope didn't show for Monday's trial. Pope's attorney didn't immediately return calls Wednesday.

Ambridge police say the incident happened about 11 p.m., not far from where Pope starred at Aliquippa Junior-Senior High School.

Police say Pope was upset when an underage friend was denied service, insulting the bartender then pulling a gun, though Pope never aimed it at the bartender or threatened to shoot him.
