(DELCOTIMES) — CAMDEN, N.J. – A Ridley Park man was arrested during a Toby Keith concert at the Susquehanna Bank Center on Saturday after he allegedly began spewing racial slurs at nearby residents while waving a Confederate Flag.
Darren T. Walp, 33, is facing up to 18 months state jail time if convicted of bias intimidation and related offenses. He may face even stiffer penalties if indicted by federal authorities for his alleged racist actions.
“We have zero tolerance for such bias acts and will seek the strongest prosecution and jail sentence possible,” Camden County Police Department Chief J. Scott Thomson said. “Furthermore, I will ask the United States Attorney’s Office to review for the possibility of a federal prosecution.”
