On April 27, 2023, Upper Allen Police attempted a traffic stop on a vehicle operated by Bucher for a vehicle code violation. Instead of pulling over, Bucher continued driving for four minutes, traveling 1.8 miles, while multiple police cars followed with lights and sirens activated.

Eventually, Bucher pulled into a parking lot where he refused to comply with lawful orders. Bucher was eventually taken into custody and resisted arrest.

Bucher was transported to the Cumberland County Central Booking where he awaits arraignment.

Upper Allen Police were assisted by Lower Allen Police and Pennsylvania State Police.
