SANATOGA PA – A 28-year-old Pottstown man was arrested early Saturday morning (Sept. 19, 2015), and will be charged with driving under the influence after his vehicle was stopped on U.S. 422 West by Lower Pottsgrove police, according to a department press release.
Thomas Martin Zodrow, whose street address was not provided, was initially pulled over at 1:25 a.m. by township Ofc. Matthew Musselman. While on patrol, Musselman alleged he paced what later was determined to be Zodrow’s green Mazda through the 422 construction zone at a speed of 66 mph. Speed in the zone is posted as a 40 mph limit at all times.
The Mazda was stopped near the A.D. Moyer property adjacent to 422. In questioning Zodrow, Musselman also alleged he “detected the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage coming from the driver.” Zodrow subsequently failed a field sobriety test, the officer added.
Following his arrest, the driver was transported to the Pottstown Police station for a certified breath test conducted by a Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office deputy. The test indicated Zodrow’s blood alcohol content exceeded the legal limit, Musselman said.
