While on patrol and traveling northbound on Buck Road at 1:38 a.m., an officer saw a vehicle traveling north in the southbound lane of travel by Thoroughbred Drive. The vehicle was stopped and its operator identified as Leonid Degtar, 27, of Feasterville. Officers' observations of Degtar, and his inability to successfully complete a series of field dexterity tests, led to his being taken into custody on suspicion of having been driving while under the influence. He was transported to the Saint Mary Medical Center where samples of his blood were obtained for analysis. Charges relating to DUI are pending the lab report.

Names of persons such as the male DUI suspect, should NOT be printed until and unless he has been convicted in a court of law. How would you like it if this was you and your employer read it??
