WASHINGTON, Pa. (AP) - Police have charged a man in western
Pennsylvania with driving drunk twice in the same night - the
second time about 15 minutes after they released him into the
custody of a friend.
Online court records don't list an attorney for 58-year-old
Robert Brodnick, of Washington, Pa., who was arrested Monday night
by the state police.
Police charge that Brodnick's blood-alcohol limit was at least
double what the law allows when he was arrested. Trooper Joseph
Christy says troopers released Brodnick to the custody of a
"responsible party" but say that person must have dropped off
Brodnick at his vehicle because the same trooper who arrested
Brodnick saw him driving again.
Brodnick tells WPXI-TV that he had two or three beers and just
wanted to drive his new car home.
