The trooper found Morgan shopping in the grocery aisle and noticed blood shot eyes, slurring speech, and the smell of alcohol and charged him with dui.

Nicholas Robert Phillips, 23, Cressona, had drug charges dismissed on motion of District Attorney Karen Byrnes Noon because the evidence was suppressed by a county judge. President Judge William E. Baldwin granted the motion.

Phillips filed a motion to suppress and the court ruled he was illegally detained and the evidence obtained must be suppressed.
