PITTSBURGH, Sept. 16 (UPI) -- The grandson of Pittsburgh's police chief has been charged with receiving stolen property, a car he claimed belonged to his cousin.
Nathan Harper, 18, of Stanton Heights, Pa., also faces charges of driving without a license and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported.
Police Chief Nate Harper said his grandson will not get any special consideration.
"Just because he's chief, that does not make anybody in his family above
the law," a spokeswoman, Diane Richard, said.
Nathan Harper was arrested Sunday evening. Police officers who spotted the car, a silver Honda, got curious when a passenger looked nervous. When they checked the plate, they discovered the car had been reported stolen Saturday.
Harper claimed the car belonged to his cousin.
