— BREEZEWOOD, Pa. — The clerk at the Wildwood Inn Motel, Breezewood, and a guest were both charged by Pennsylvania State Police Thursday after they became involved in an altercation about rent money that was due.

Police said the guest, Robert Lewis Adams III, 27, Breezewood, yelled and slammed his hand on top of the office television.

The clerk, Moussa Quedraogo, 48, Breezewood, then punched Adams in the face, grabbed him by the neck and “fish hooked” him by putting his fingers inside Adams’ cheek and pulling.

Adams suffered minor bruising, according to police. The television suffered minor disruption of cable service.

Quedraogo was charged with harassment and Adams was charged with disorderly conduct.

The television was recharged by cable company employees.
