On 06/30/2019 at 2349 hours, an Officer from the West Manchester Township Police Department was on patrol. During this time, the Officer observed an occupied white Ford Focus in Dunedin Park, 224 Hanover Road. The park had closed at dusk and the occupant of the vehicle was in violation of the township ordinance which prohibits citizens from occupying the park after dusk.
The Officer activated his emergency lights and made contact with the driver of the Focus, who was the sole occupant. The Officer asked the driver for his driver's license. The driver handed him a PA driver's license with the name Robert Crum III, which identified the driver as the defendant.
While the Officer was speaking with the defendant, he could smell an odor of alcoholic beverages and noticed that the defendant's eyes were bloodshot. The Officer could also see a large bottle of vodka on the passenger seat. This bottle was 1/3 full. He could also see that the keys were in the ignition and observed the driver turn the keys as he walked up to the vehicle.
The Officer asked the defendant if he had consumed any alcoholic beverages recently. The defendant stated that he had been drinking but could not tell me how much. The defendant advised that he was fighting with his girlfriend and had gone to the park to relax. The defendant stated that he drove into the park approximately 30 minutes prior to my arrival.
The Officer then requested that the defendant consent to a portable breath test (PBT), to which the defendant agreed. The PBT results suggested a BAC of .160%. At that point, the defendant was asked to perform some standard field sobriety tests (SFSTs).
The SFSTs were conducted. The defendant showed signs of impairment during the SFSTs.
Given the Officer’s observations, he placed the defendant under arrest for driving under the influence to a degree that would render him incapable of safe driving. The defendant was transported to York Hospital where the DL-26B was read to the defendant. The defendant then consented to a blood test. The toxicology results of that blood test provided by NMS labs concluded that the defendant's BAC was .167%.
Based on the above information, Robert Eugene Crum III was charged with 1 count of DUI, Misdemeanor.
