Driver taken into custody on multiple charges

At about 3 a.m. on March 24, Pennsylvania police spotted a Honda Civic going 81 miles per hour in a 55 mile per hour zone. Authorities trailed the vehicle as it went south on Route 378 before it left the highway at the Center City exit. Although officers tried to initiate a traffic stop, the driver ignored the lights and a stop sign at the exit ramp.

The driver also drove west in the eastbound lane of West Union Boulevard prior to going through a red light. He eventually lost control of the vehicle while trying to turn onto North New Street. After trying to elude authorities on foot, he was taken into custody on West Spruce Street. When police finally caught up to the 29-year-old, they found marijuana in his pocket, and he said that he had consumed 12 beers and marijuana prior to driving.

Furthermore, he was driving on a suspended license and was wanted in Northampton County. Police charged the man with felony fleeing and eluding, driving under the influence and being in possession of marijuana. Furthermore, he was issued 23 citations for traffic offenses related to the incident. The driver was taken to Lehigh County Jail and has a preliminary hearing scheduled for April 2.

Those who are charged with drunk driving may face a license suspension, jail time or a fine if they are convicted of that charge. Legal fees and court costs may also need to be accounted for. As a result, they might find it advisable to have the help of a defense attorney in trying to counter the allegations.
