Borough man faces DUI count; 3 charged in fight: Police and Courts Roundup

Posted

Middletown police charged a borough man with DUI after pulling him over for having an expired state inspection sticker near Ann and Grant streets shortly after 10 p.m. April 10.

James Thornton Jr., 64, of the first block of Ann Street, had a blood-alcohol percentage of 0.087, based on results of a preliminary breath test that was administered at the scene, police said in arrest papers filed with District Judge David Judy.

Thornton later consented to a blood draw at the county booking center. Police did not report results.

Police also cited Thornton for driving with a 5-year-old boy in the back seat of the 2012 Hyundai Sonata who police said was not properly restrained.

A preliminary hearing for Thornton is scheduled for May 13.
