The fight started over a snowmobile ride through another man's yard

COCHRANTON, Pa. (WKBN) – Police in Mercer County are looking for a man who they say dragged another man with his snowmobile.

The victim told Pennsylvania State Police he stopped the man on the snowmobile after he saw him drive through his fields Wednesday night in Cochranton.

He asked for the driver’s identification and told him he called the police. That is when the suspect hit and dragged the man about 90 feet.
