Four motorists charged with DUI
It was about 2:20 a.m. on July 4 when a state trooper saw Jeffrey Aderhold, 44, of 77 Aderhold Drive, Hughesville, cross the fog line and the centerline twice while driving 2004 Chevrolet Trailblazer on Interstate 180 in Montoursville, court records stated. So Aderhold was pulled over.
“I immediately detected a moderate odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from inside the vehicle. His speech was slowed and slurred,” the trooper said of Aderhold, who admitted to drinking about two to three hours earlier, according to an affidavit.
Aderhold, whose driver’s license was suspended, showed “high probability of being under the influence of intoxicating substances,” police said. Charged with DUI, driving a suspended license and careless driving, Aderhold, who refused to submit to a blood test, waived his preliminary hearing before District Judge Gary Whiteman and was released on $5,000 bail.
In another case, arriving a a one-vehicle crash scene on Radio Club Road in Fairfield Township about 8:50 p.m. on May 4, a state trooper found the driver, Shamus Daniels, 45, of 275 Cedarwood Drive, Montoursville, appeared “disheveled, unbalanced, sleeping and drowsy,” court records stated.
Daniels admitted to drinking four 12-ounce beers earlier, the trooper said, adding that “I detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from him.” Daniels, who declined treatment for a minor injury, crashed his 2015 Kia into a utility pole. While undergoing a series of field sobriety tests, he “demonstrated multiple indicators of impairment,” the trooper said in an affidavit. Charged with DUI, Daniels had a blood-alcohol concentration level of .21, court records stated. He waived his preliminary hearing and is free on $5,000 bail.
In another DUI crash, Tylill Robinson, 27, of 326 Bridge St., driving a Ford Crown Victoria, was allegedly under the influence of oxycodone and oxymorphone when he was involved in a four-vehicle accident at East Third Street and Country Club Drive at 2:10 p.m. on May 28, court records filed by state police stated.
Robinson was “sluggish and unsteady on his feet, and his speech was quite slow,” the trooper who investigated the crash stated in an affidavit. Charged with DUI of controlled substances and driving with a suspended license, he is free on $5,000 bail after waiving his preliminary hearing.
In another case, after a state trooper pulled over Nathaniel Dincher on Route 220 in Woodward Township about 2 a.m. on May 30 because he crossed the centerline and the fog line with his pickup truck, the officer detected “a moderate odor of an alcoholic beverage” coming from the 37-year-old Bastress Township man’s vehicle, court records stated.
Dincher, of 100 Old Church Lane, showed several signs of impairment while undergoing a series of field sobriety classes, and it turned out that he had a blood-alcohol concentration level, police said in an affidavit. He has waived his preliminary hearing and is free on $1,500 bail.
