Man charged with traffic light tampering in Del.

    A Delaware man has been charged with tampering with traffic lights in Milford.

    The News Journal of Wilmington reports 49-year-old Stephen R. Chike of Bridgeville was arrested Saturday after he opened a light control box at the intersection of U.S. 113 and Del. 14 and switched the lights to manual.

    The switch left the lights so they stayed on green only for U.S. 113 traffic.
