A Lower Merion police captain was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol after his car crashed into the rear of another car Tuesday night, Radnor Township police said yesterday.
Capt. John H. Sheehan was charged with drunken driving about 9:35 p.m. Tuesday after the minor accident, which occurred next to Villanova University at the intersection of County Line Road and North Ithan Avenue, police said.
Police said the crash was reported by university security guards. They said Sheehan was sitting in his car, which had unspecified front-end damage, when Radnor police Officer Marty Gurney arrived moments after the accident.
