Coatesville City Manager Harry G. Walker III was arrested yesterday on charges of drunken driving, police said. State police at the Embreeville barracks said Walker, 64, was stopped about 2:30 a.m. after radar showed his vehicle speeding while traveling west on the Route 30 bypass at Route 113 in East Caln Township. Police said Walker failed a field sobriety test and was taken to an area hospital, where he consented to having blood drawn to determine his blood-alcohol level.

The Texas Department of Public Safety is pursuing an investigation into whether injured Dallas Cowboy Erik Williams was driving while intoxicated before the automobile accident that left him hospitalized with multiple injuries. "We are proceeding with a DWI investigation," DPS spokesman Mike Cox said.

When officers arrived, police said, the drunken driver was sitting on the curb, restrained by another motorist who had blocked his Thunderbird. Little restraint was required. "It's not that he get could up all that quickly," Penndel Police Chief Stephen Burke said dryly. The man, he said, had a blood-alcohol reading of 0.26 percent, making him legally intoxicated. State law prohibits driving with a blood-alcohol content of 0.10 percent or greater. The man, identified by Burke as Paul Reese, 27, of Trenton Road, Langhorne, had just been involved in two minor accidents in two Bucks County communities and had been tracked down and stopped by witnesses to the second accident, police said.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. - Sen. Michael Crapo pleaded guilty Friday to a charge of driving while intoxicated and then apologized for his actions and asked forgiveness from his constituents. The Idaho Republican said nothing during a brief appearance in Alexandria General District Court, where he pleaded guilty to the misdemeanor and was ordered to pay a $250 fine and complete an alcohol safety program. He also agreed to a 12-month suspension of his driver's license. The sentence is typical for first-time drunken-driving offenders in Virginia.

In an attempt to "put the matter behind" him, Owen J. Roberts School District Superintendent Terrance Furin has applied for Chester County's Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD) program rather than fight a drunken-driving charge he received in May. Furin, reading a statement during Monday's school board meeting, said he chose this alternative to facing a trial after considering the effects of the charges on both himself and the school district. "This district is on the move and I want the district to resume moving in that direction," Furin said.

The New Jersey Supreme Court ruled yesterday that a Cape May bar did not have to monitor the condition of a patron who later was involved in a drunken-driving accident because the bar had not served him alcohol. The 2003 crash killed 21-year-old James Hamby of Upper Township, a passenger in a car driven by Frederick Nesbitt III. The two were among a group of friends who had gone to the C View Inn in Cape May. Nesbitt, 19, of Dennis Township, was the only one in the group younger than the legal drinking age. Nesbitt had been drinking before the group arrived at the bar, but he was served only sodas during his two hours there.

ISSUE | MEDIA Poor news judgment I can't remember the last time there was so much media coverage of an drunken driving arrest ("Don't mix and drive," Monday). It happens every day. Some people are arrested two or three times, and almost no one finds out their identity. Maybe it was the blue habit and black veil that made the media think this story needed special attention. Sister Kimberly A. Miller made a mistake in November. We all make mistakes. But did this six-hour trial and the sentencing need to be splashed across every newspaper and carried on every television news channel for what seemed like two weeks?

East Greenwich Township Mayor Fred Grant voted to lay off a part-time officer who law enforcement officials said helped arrest him on drunken-driving and speeding charges in July, a move denounced Wednesday by the police chief as a conflict of interest. Grant was driving 91 m.p.h. in a 45-m.p.h. zone on Kings Highway in the Gloucester County township July 31, according to police, and was charged with driving under the influence. "I don't feel the mayor should be able to discuss personnel issues or budgetary issues with police when he has a pending DWI case in town.
