Pennsylvania Man Gets 2 DUI Arrests In 1 Night

WASHINGTON, Pa. (AP) – Police have charged a man in western Pennsylvania with driving drunk twice in the same night – the second time about 15 minutes after they released him into the custody of a friend.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 58-year-old Robert Brodnick, of Washington, Pa., who was arrested Monday night by the state police.

Police charge that Brodnick's blood-alcohol limit was at least double what the law allows when he was arrested. Trooper Joseph Christy says troopers released Brodnick to the custody of a “responsible party” but say that person must have dropped of Brodnick at his vehicle because the same trooper who arrested Brodnick saw him driving again.

Brodnick tells WPXI-TV that he had two or three beers and just wanted to drive his new car home.
