SANATOGA PA – A phone call from what Lower Pottsgrove police described as “concerned citizens” kept a woman arrested for intoxication Saturday (Feb. 16, 2013) out of a truck and off the street, according to an officer’s report.
Charged with public drunkenness Saturday afternoon at 12:37 in the parking lot of the Turkey Hill Minit Market, 3051 E. High St., was Wendy Hennessey, 43 of East High Street in the township, Ofc. Scott Weidenhammer said.
Weidenhammer responded to a phone call placed by unrelated parties after he said they witnessed Hennessey “staggering in and out of the store,” and later as she “was attempting to leave the store in a truck.” Officers arrived and made contact before she had a chance to exit the lot. They administered a preliminary breathalyzer test, determined her blood alcohol content was .315 percent, and cited her, the report stated.
Hennessey was released to a sober adult.
