Police pull over driver Saturday

MIDDLESEX TWP — A suspected drunken driver was Sober. Huh?

Middlesex Township police could have been excused for doing a double take upon checking the driver's license of a Westmoreland County man believed to be driving drunk.

Daniel A. Sober, 44, of Lower Burrell was allegedly nearly two-and-a-half times the state's legal limit for alcohol early Saturday morning when he was pulled over on Route 8 at Cruikshank Road in Middlesex Township.

District Judge Lewis Stoughton later arraigned Sober on charges of driving under the influence and careless driving. He was subsequently released on his own recognizance.
