A jury found Theodore "Ted" Kinser, of Brownsville guilty of DUI for which he was arrested on August 29, 2015. Police said Kinser failed to stop at a road safety check during the summer "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" Campaign, and pulled into a random driveway instead, in what they said was an attempt to bypass the road check.
Police said Kinser showed obvious signs of drunk driving during field sobriety tests and was arrested for DUI. Kinser refused a chemical test at the time of his arrest and pleaded not guilty to DUI in district court.
Police said at the time of his arrest, Kinser told the arresting officer that he and his attorney would have a great case against the Commonwealth in court, but officials reported that Kinser represented himself without an attorney in court on Tuesday, November 4th during the jury trial and was found guilty. He was sentenced to two days in jail and a $500 fine.
