SCF Tip: Don't show up in Court drunk ... especially if coming to court for DUI
A man who arrived at court drunk for a drunken-driving hearing was again charged with driving under the influence, police said.
Paul H. Zeigler, 45, of Glen Rock, appeared at a preliminary hearing at the Shrewsbury district court on March 26 for a DUI charge from December.
Police said Zeigler appeared to be intoxicated at the hearing, according to police records.
After his court appearance, Zeigler failed a portable breath test for alcohol and was taken into custody for a blood test, police said.
The second test revealed that Zeigler's blood-alcohol level was twice the legal driving limit and he was charged with DUI, police said.
