Three charged with DUI

After his 2013 Chevrolet Impala struck two parked vehicles at West Third and Hepburn streets about 7 p.m. on March 30, Trovon McMillan “denied drinking alcohol or using drugs,” but the city police officer investigating the crash detected alcohol on his breath and notice that his speech was slurred and his eyes were glassy and bloodshot, according to an affidavit.

McMillan, 32, of 150 W. Fourth St., “performed very poorly” during a series of field sobriety tests, police said. Charged with DUI and careless driving, McMillan, who had a blood-alcohol concentration level of .17, is free on bail.

In another case, Jarred Wade King, 22, of 310 W. Penn St., Muncy, was charged by state police with DUI and careless driving after he was stopped on Lycoming Mall Drive in Muncy Township after failing to use his turn signal about 12:40 a.m. on April 15. King, who admitted to having “two beers four to five hours ago,” had a blood-alcohol concentration of .09, police said. He has been sent a summons to appear before a district judge.

In another case, after a city police officer stopped Sharief Rainier at East Church and Academy streets for a traffic violation about 8:15 p.m. on March 18, the 34-year-old motorist blurted out “If you want to kill me, kill me,” according to an affidavit.

“Rainer’s eyes were glassy and bloodshot, and he stated he had one or two beers,” the officer said, adding that the driver “smelled strongly of an alcoholic beverage,” the affidavit stated.

Rainier, of 234 Hughes St., was ordered to get out of his 2021 Hyundai Elantra as he was “being disorderly and used profanities” at the officer, court records stated. He refused to perform field sobriety tests, telling the officer “I’m not doing any of that. I’m drunk. I’ve been drinking,” according to police.

Charged with DUI, careless driving and driving without a license, Rainier, who had a blood-alcohol concentration level of .20, is free on bail after waiving his preliminary hearing.
