Almshouse Road by 2nd Street Pike
On Monday, Nov. 26 at 1:09 a.m., an officer observed a vehicle traveling north on 2nd Street Pike run a steady red traffic signal at its intersection with Almshouse Road. The vehicle was stopped and the operator was identified as a 25-year-old from Morrisville. Observations of the man, along with his inability to successfully complete a series of field dexterity tests, led to the officer taking him into custody on suspicion of having been driving while under the influence. He was transported to the Saint Mary Medical Center where samples of his blood were obtained for analysis. After processing at Northampton Township Police Department headquarters, he was released into the care of a family member. Charges relating to DUI are pending the lab report.
