On Friday the 13th, A Bat Falls To Bench In Luzerne County Courtroom
WILKES-BARRE -- Luzerne County Judge Tina Gartley jokingly called her bench "the scene of the crime" Friday afternoon, the place where a bat suddenly fell from the sky next to her chair in the middle of a court proceeding. "We're having a regular court session, we have people in the gallery, people at the bench and we hear a soft thud," said Judge Gartley.
