Cecil Police Charge Two With DUI

The police department responded to the following incidents this past weekend.

charged a McDonald woman and Eighty Four man with driving under the influence following two separate early-morning incidents Saturday.

Police officers stopped Audie D. Moore, 57, after officers observed him drift into the left-hand lane and continue driving there while traveling south on Southpointe Boulevard.

Officers noted the odor of alcohol coming from Moore, and said he had glossy eyes—signs of impairment that led police to conduct a field sobriety test.

Moore failed the test and was taken into custody for suspicion of DUI. Police transferred him back to the station, where a breath test indicated his blood-alcohol level was .099 percent.

Two charges of DUI will proceed by summons, police said.

At 1:31 a.m. police were summoned to state Route 980, where a one-vehicle accident was reported.

A nearby resident told police that a Honda had gone off the road and into the weeds off state Route 980 near Swihart Road—and that it had been driven away despite heavy damage to the front end.

Police discovered the vehicle parked in the lot of a business off state Route 980—and that the woman to whom the vehicle was registered, Kristen Flaherty, 40—was not in it.

Officers drove to her Northern Road home, where she was sitting on the porch. While speaking to officers, they noticed that her speech was slurred, her eyes were bloodshot and she swayed back and forth as she stood.

After failing a field sobriety test, Falatry was taken into custody for suspicion of DUI and transported to the Cecil Police Department for a breath test—one that showed that she had a blood-alcohol content of .178 percent.

Police charged her with two counts of DUI and one charge for failing to alert police to the accident.

The charges will proceed by summons.
