SANATOGA PA – Charges of driving under the influence have now been filed against a Lower Pottsgrove woman, township police reported Tuesday (July 29, 2014), after an analysis of a blood test conducted 16 days earlier indicated she had alcohol and a drug in her system while operating a motor vehicle.
Caitlyn Elizabeth Stoy, 22, of the 2100 block of Sunnyside Avenue, had been arrested July 13 (Sunday) for suspicion of DUI, according to a Lower Pottsgrove Police Department press release, and at the time consented to provide a blood sample for testing. The recently returned results confirmed the presence of alcohol and phencyclidine, also know as PCP, police allege.
Ofcs. Kevin Black and Matthew Kemp say they attempted to stop the vehicle because its rear tail lights were out July 13 at about 12:30 a.m. as it traveled east on East High Street. The vehicle failed to stop, they claimed, even after the officers used the overhead lights and sirens or their patrol car. When Stoy finally pulled over on Sunnyside, they added, the vehicle nearly stuck a curb and swerved within her lane of travel.
She was put through, and failed, “a battery of standard field sobriety tests,” police allege. Black then made the arrest, according to the release.
