When the first airliner struck the World Trade Center North Tower on September 11, 2001, Kevin Wagner was in the Bath Road courthouse he now oversees as district judge. At the time, the Bristol Township resident was working as the elected constable and carrying out his regular duties.When the plane struck the South Tower and it was clear America was under attack, the constable said he went home shortly after.“I was at home watching it on TV,” Wagner recalled of hours after the towers were struck. “It was tough to watch.”Within hours of the attacks unfolding, Wagner and fellow constables Joe Coffman, John Cornon, Donny Lorady, Ken Lee, and Walt Swinehart were traveling from Lower Bucks County to New York City. They were headed up to offer whatever aid they could as the nation stood in a state of shock.Wagner said he traveled through the Holland Tunnel after his law enforcement identification card was checked by an FBI special agent.
