State Police Confront Protestors at Riverdale Mobile Home Park

State police were called to a neighborhood standoff in Lycoming County Tuesday where a handful of residents refuse to leave a mobile home park that was recently bought by a company doing business in the natural gas industry.

Around two dozen state troopers were at the Riverdale mobile home park near Jersey Shore, with restraints in hand. Troopers say they were ready to arrest protestors who they say were trespassing. The activists come from all over the country to support residents forced out by the property’s new owner, Aqua America.
