Man Gets Two DUIs in One Night

Police in western Pennsylvania have charged a man with driving drunk twice in the same night.

58-year-old Robert Brodnick, of Washington, Pa., was arrested Monday night for a DUI.

Trooper Joseph Christy says his fellow officers released the suspect into the custody of a “responsible party” but say that person must have dropped of Brodnick at his vehicle because the same trooper who arrested Brodnick saw him driving again 15 minutes later.

The officer pulled him over again and arrested him for a second DUI.

Police say that Brodnick’s blood-alcohol content was at least double limit when he was arrested.

Brodnick tells WPXI-TV, the NBC affiliate in Pittsburgh, that he had two or three beers and just wanted to drive his new car home.

Online court records do not list an attorney for Robert Brodnick.
