Celebrity doesn't always have its privileges

The notion that movie stars get preferential treatment from law enforcement may have been debunked last night. Actress Reese Witherspoon was arrested for disorderly conduct in conjunction with a traffic stop that left her husband (Jim Toth) arrested for drunk driving.

Police obtain DUI search warrants quicker with new app

While the Memorial Day holiday is weeks away, law enforcement agencies across Pennsylvania are gearing up for increased drunk driving patrols. The goal is the same as in years past: keep as many drunk drivers off the road as possible. This means making arrests and obtaining information to support criminal charges (usually through blood, urine or breath tests). However, some drivers may refuse these tests in an attempt to avoid criminal charges.

Philly police officer charged with DUI

It is ironic when police officers are arrested on suspicion of drunk driving. After all, they are charged with enforcing the laws of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, so the expectation is that they would follow the laws that are put in force. For a police officer from the City of Philadelphia, this promise was allegedly broken.

Diet drinks...easy on the waist, hard on the head

The proliferation of diet drinks into the alcoholic beverage industry has inspired a new market. Drinks suited for young women who want to maintain their figures. Perhaps the most popular is the Skinnygirl product line released by Bethenny Frankel. Outside of officially licensed drinks, more people are including diet sodas to create mixed drinks, ostensibly to reduce their caloric intake.

Breathalyzer tests temporary suspended by PA state police

This week we wanted to follow up on a prior post where a Dauphin County judge dismissed several DUI cases due to concerns over the breathalyzer machine used to measure a driver's blood alcohol levels. Essentially, the Intoxilyzer 5000EN, the machine used in the cases, had not been independently tested to ensure accuracy.

County court ruling could impact thousands of PA DUI cases

A recent ruling involving breathalyzer results could impact thousands of high-level DUI cases throughout Pennsylvania. A Dauphin County judge ruled that breathalyzer machines were not accurate in gauging blood alcohol levels higher than .15 percent. As such, breathalyzer evidence could not be used in prosecuting (extreme) DUI cases.

Man flees police, finds himself in crash that hurts pedestrians

A 47-year-old man from York Township, Pennsylvania, has been behind bars since May. According to police, he was involved in a drunk driving accident that injured two pedestrians. One of those pedestrians was severely injured after the crash that occurred on May 3 around 2:15 a.m.

Fewer drunk driving arrests reported

While the New Year's parties have ended and people settle into normal life in 2013, we look back on trends for drunk driving arrests. While final statistics are still coming in for the recent holiday season, it appears that DUI arrests are trending down. According to a report by the American Automobile Association (AAA) there were fewer DUI arrests in 2011 in Pennsylvania (50,413) compared to 2010 (52,000).
