Man Fined For DUI

It was the fourth time the man was on trial on drunk driving charges, attorneys for both sides said. He was also on trial in 1992 for an assault on his mother, a prosecutor said.

The man will have to pay a $100 fine for disorderly conduct but won’t serve time or spend any more money on restitution for a drunk driving charge. The defendant beat the DUI charges in front of a six-man, six-woman jury Wednesday in Lackawanna County Court, but the judge fined him for the misdemeanor not included in the trial.

It was the fourth time the defendant was on trial on drunken driving charges, attorneys for both sides said. He was also on trial in 1992 for an assault on his mother, prosecutors said.

The defendant was arrested for drunk driving last May after a Scott Township police officer said he watched the defendant make a wide turn onto Route 107 in the Heart Lake Section of the township.

The officer said that he observed the wide turn from Route 247, saw the car stop and watched the driver turn off the lights and get out to open the hood of the car.

The defendant admitted he’d had a shot and a beer at a nearby bar. Defense attorney Patrick M. Rogan said the jury acquitted the man because the state didn’t prove the drunk driving charges in the case.
