Court documents indicate the Clarion County Detectives filed criminal charges against 33-year-old Joseph James Bruno.

According to a criminal complaint, Joseph James Bruno failed to appear in the Clarion County Court of Common Pleas on July 7, 2021, for sentencing related to three separate cases against him and failed to appear or surrender himself to the court.

The charges stem from a DUI arrest in 2019, a meth bust in 2019, and an incident where he harbored a wanted individual in 2020.

Bruno was arraigned in front of Magisterial District Judge Duane L. Quinn at 10:42 a.m. on September 16, on the following charges:
