Published March 08. 2013 05:03PM

McAdoo police have cited an Allentown man for drunken driving.

Patrolman Steven Homanko was on patrol at 2:30 a.m. March 3 when he observed a silver Voyager minivan being driven in an erratic manner on Kennedy Drive. The officer stopped the van after it crossed the double yellow line several times and made several sudden stops.

The driver was identified as Sante Rosario-Gonzalez, 40, of N. Sixth Street. Gonzalez exhibited several symptoms of intoxication and admitted to having several alcoholic beverages before he began driving. The "license" he provided was a Pennsylvania identification card.

A records check indicated Gonzalez had a suspended driver's license. He was given, and failed, several field sobriety tests. A portable breath test determined he had a blood-alcohol content of .200 percent, more than twice the legal limit of .08 percent.

A tow truck was dispatched for the minivan and a taxi was called for the operator, who was charged with driving under the influence (DUI) of alcohol, driving with a suspended license, and careless driving.
