A man who has been convicted of DUI several times in the past and labeled a "habitual offender" by the Pennsylvania Dept. of Transportation was arrested and charged with DUI-Habitual Offender, after he was stopped on Old Philadelphia Pike and allegedly found to have a blood-alcohol concentration (BAC) of .06 percent, Lower Saucon Township Police said in a news release issued Monday.
According to police, William Hartman, 26, of the 1000 block of Seneca Street, Fountain Hill, was operating a motorcycle when he was stopped near Seidersville Road and Old Philadelphia Pike at about 12:16 a.m. Oct. 7.
Police said that after he was stopped, it was learned Hartman's driver's license was under suspension for DUI.
He was arrested on suspicion of DUI after performing field sobriety tests, and was later determined to have a BAC of .06 percent, which is three times the legal limit for a vehicle operator whose license suspension is DUI-related, police said.
Police said Hartman has also been charged with driving on a suspended license related to a DUI, and operating a motorcycle without a license.
