On May 16, 2019 at approximately 2012 hours, an Officer from the West Manchester Township Police Department was operating a marked patrol unit and was on routine patrol. On this date and time the Officer began to follow a blue Dodge pickup bearing PA registration traveling south on Carlisle Road in the area of White Street. A Penndot registration check revealed that the registration plate displayed on the Dodge pickup was actually issued for a Chevrolet truck. Based on the traffic violation of Unauthorized Transfer or Use of Registration, the Officer initiated a traffic stop in the 1000 block of Carlisle Road.
The Officer made contact with the driver and advised him the reason for the stop. The driver verbally identified himself as Randy Billet. Billet admitted he didn't possess a valid driver’s license and Billet stated his license was DUI suspended. Billet stated he had just purchased the Dodge pickup today but he did not have the registration paperwork with him. While speaking with Billet, the Officer noticed a very strong odor of alcoholic beverages coming from his breath. The Officer noticed Billet's eyes were glassy and Billet's speech was slurred at times. Billet was asked how much he had to drink today and Billet initially stated "nothing". The Officer told Billet that he could smell the alcohol coming from his breath and Billet then admitted he had two beers just prior to being stopped. Billet was adamant that he only consumed two beers and he was not intoxicated. Billet stated he was willing to take a blood test to prove his point. After confirming Billet's information, the Officer requested Billet to step out of the vehicle.
The Officer then conducted a series of field sobriety exercises (STFT’s), none of which the defendant could successfully complete.
The Officer placed Billet under arrest for DUI and placed him in the rear of the patrol vehicle. Billet was transported to York Hospital where he was given an opportunity to consent to the blood test. Blood was drawn from Billet's left arm at 0003 hours. The blood sample was sent to NMS Labs for testing.
On 5/30/2019 I received the Toxicology Report from NMS Labs. The report indicated a .135% BAC and 17 ng/mL of Delta 9 Carboxy THC.
A review of Billet's PA driving record indicated this is a seventh DUI arrest, fourth offense for Driving While Operating Privilege Is Suspended or Revoked - DUI Related 1543B, and second offense for Driving While Operating Privilege Is Suspended or Revoked - DUI Related 1543B1.1.
Based on the above information, Randy Scott Billet was charged with 4 counts of DUI and 1 count of Driving While Operating Privilege is Suspended or Revoked, M3.
