September 2017 DUI Arrests
On 08/12/2017 was working patrol in full uniform and in marked partol unit fourty-three (43). I overheard Fairview Twp PD was getting a call about an erratic driver leaving from the Silver Lake Inn. The complaint advised she saw a white female stumble out to a silver Ford stationwagon, get in the driver seat and drive off. While on on patrol traveling west in 3500 block of Lewisberry Rd. when I observed a vehicle’s headlights turn on off to the side of the road.
As I was approaching the vehicle I could see that the vehicle was off in the grass in what looked to be a ditch. The vehicle then made a sharp right turn out onto Lewisberry Rd. traveling east. I turned around getting behind the vehicle. I then activated my overhead emergency lighting and siren. The vehicle, a silver Ford Explorer pulled to the side of the road, the vehicle then jerked to the left. As the Ford was slowing to a stop it made another jerk to the right. The Ford was bearing PA registration JYR0559. This was to be the same Ford stationwagon that left the Silver Lake in.
I approached the Ford on the driver’s side. I made contact with the driver, a white female. As I was making contact with the female she advised me the music was not going to shut off until she opens the door. The female then opened the door to which I stopped her from opening it any further with my right hand. I advised the female who I was and the stop was being recorded. I then asked the female for her driver’s license, registration, and insurance card. The female then asked if the title for the vehicle would work, I advised her no. I advised the female again I needed her driver’s license, registration, and insurance. I then asked the female where she was coming from. The female advised she was dropping off a friend at her house. I then asked the female why she got stuck in the ditch. The female advised she had lost her phone while driving so she was looking for it, which made her get stuck in the ditch. I then asked the female if she had been drinking. The female advised she had a beer about five hours ago, then advised she would take a breathalyzer. The female advised she is a bar tender. I asked the female where she bartends, she advised Boomerang Bar and Grill. I then asked the female her name, she advised Brittany Eaton. Ms. Eaton then provided me with the registration and insurance card. I then asked Ms. Eaton if she had her driver’s license on her. Ms. Eaton then started looking through the glove box and center console of the Ford. As Ms. Eaton was looking thought the center console I observed her pick up a PA photo identification card and put it down. The identification card had the name, Brittany Eaton on it. Ms. Eaton then provided me with a PA drivers license with her name on it but then said oh wait its expired. Ms. Eaton then started looking for again. I advised Ms. Eaton I would be able to use the one she gave me. I asked Ms. Eaton if she was willing to do some field sobriety test, she advised she was.
Field sobriety tests completed by Ms. Eaton showed signs of being impaired and incapable of safely operating a motor vehicle. A PBT was provided to Eaton. The result of the PBT was 0.138% BAC. I then advised Ms. Eaton to turn around and put her hands behind her back. I then placed handcuffs on Ms. Eaton with her palms facing outward, double locking them to ensure proper fit. I advised Ms. Eaton she was being arrested for driving under the influence. I then placed Ms. Eaton in the rear passenger side of my vehicle, car fourty-three.
At 2353 hours I transported Ms. Eaton to the booking center. At 0010 hours I arrived at the booking center. I then read the DL-26 form to Ms. Eaton. I asked Ms. Eaton if she would to submit to a chemical test of blood, she advised she would. At 0031 hours Phlebotomist Chelsea Talbot drew two gray capped tubes of Ms. Eaton’s blood from her left arm. Phlebotomist Talbot then sealed both gray capped tubes of Ms. Eaton’s blood in my presence with seals Ms. Eaton initialed.
On 08/21/2017 I received blood results from NMS Labs for Ms. Eaton.

On 09-09-2017 at around 0928 hours, York County Control advised Newberry Police that Terri Horton called in to 911 to report he was involved in a hit and run. Horton advised he was in the area of 1210 York Haven Road traveling east bound when a red car traveling west bound entered into his lane of travel. This red car went to the far left of the roadway, up an embankment, came back down and struck Horton’s vehicle. Moderate damage was done to both vehicles. The red vehicle never pulled over and continued west on York Haven Road, at which point Horton lost sight of the red car.
Around the same time York County Control advised Newberry Police of a 911 call coming from a trailer park, located at 1300 York Haven Road. The caller John Bonham advised a red station wagon type vehicle entered the trailer park at a high rate of speed. The vehicle had heavy front end damage. This vehicle then drove into an empty lot in the mobile home park. The driver exited the vehicle and ran to the east toward a corn field. Bonham advised the driver of the vehicle was a black male wearing black shorts and a black t shirt.
Upon arrival to the area of the trailer park, I located the suspect in front of 1325 York Haven Road. This person was identified as Anthony Yates. Yates advised he was just involved in a motor vehicle accident. He took me to where his vehicle was located. His red station wagon vehicle was located in an empty lot inside of the trailer park. This empty lot was located about 200 yards inside of the trailer park. Yates advised he was driving the red vehicle east on York Haven Road when he fell asleep. Yates said when he woke up he was in the opposite lane of travel and a truck was coming at him head on. This truck then struck the front of his car. He advised he then kept driving and turned into the trailer park. Yates made no attempt to stop in a reasonable spot prior to being in an accident. Yates also did not attempt to call 911 after he was involved in a motor vehicle accident that involved moderate damage to both vehicles.
While speaking with Yates he advised he had a prior DUI for driving while smoking marijuana. Yates had different stories of where he was coming from. I then had Yates perform field sobriety tests. Yates showed multiple signs of drug impairment including but not limited to, a lack of balance, trouble following simple instructions and impaired perception of time. Yates was then arrested for driving under the influence of drugs. When asked, Yates advised I could search the vehicle. Upon searching the vehicle, I located a “bud” of marijuana on the floor behind the passenger seat. This marijuana “bud” is about the size of a quarter.
Yates was transported to York Memorial Hospital where a DL-26 form was read. Yates consented to a blood draw. This blood was sent to NMS Labs for testing.
Yates was taken to the York County Central Booking Center. Upon searching Yates’s driving record, he was a DUI suspended driver. Yates had a prior DUI in October of 2015, making him target 25.
On August 31, 2017 at approximately 0035 hrs. York County Communications (YCC) dispatched units to the McDonald’s located on Robinhood Dr. for an erratic driver. YCC advised that the caller was an employee at the McDonald’s reporting there were several intoxicated people in a white van at the drive thru. A registration tag of KKR7466 was provided by the caller. Officer Welcomer (FTPD), advised he would respond to the McDonald’s to make contact with the vehicle prior to NTPD units arriving. Officer Welcomer advised that he’d located the vehicle and had it stopped in the McDonald’s parking lot.
Upon my arrival on the scene, Officer Welcomer advised me that the driver, a David Hooper, admitted there was a marijuana “blunt” in the ash tray of the center console. There were also two other subjects present who were riding in the vehicle with Hooper. I asked Hooper how much he had to drink tonight to which he advised me 2-3 shots of “E&J”. Hooper also admitted that he participated in the smoking of the marijuana blunt about a 1/2 hour ago. While speaking with Hooper, I detected an odor consistent with someone who had recently consumed alcohol. I requested that Hooper participate in field sobriety tests which he consented to. The results of these tests detected signs of impairment in Hooper and signs of recent marijuana use.
Officer Welcomer conducted a search of the interior of the vehicle. During the search, a small plastic bag of suspected marijuana was found in a cigarette container between the front two seats as well as several nearly empty cigar wrappers which appeared to be used as blunts to smoke marijuana. These items were seized and returned to the station as evidence.
Hooper was placed under arrest and handcuffed behind his back. He was placed in the rear of patrol car #47 and transported to the booking center for processing. It was also discovered that Mr. Hooper also has a suspended driver’s license as the time of this incident. Hooper was provided miranda warnings to which he advised he understood them. He admitted that the items in the cigarette container where his including the marijuana.
Upon arrival at the booking center, I witnessed VAT Deshawna Dickerson draw blood from the arm of Hooper which was packaged and sent to NMS labs for analysis. Statements were obtained from two witnesses to the event.
On 9/11/2017 the toxicology report was received from NMS labs. The report states that at the time of testing, David Hooper had a BAC of 0.070 and 7.0 ng/mL of Delta-9 THC, 54 ng/mL of Delta-9 Carboxy THC and 3.7 ng/mL of 11-Hydroxy Delta-9 THC in his blood. The report was signed by Matthew McMullin, M.S., F-ABFT, TC (Forensic Toxicologist.
On September 14, 2017 at approx. 1715 Hrs. York County Control dispatched Newberry Twp. Police Department to a report of a trespassing complaint at 21 Dunkle Avenue. Dispatch reports that a Nichole Kohler was on scene and refusing to leave the address. Prior to police arrival Ms. Kohler fled the scene reportedly driving a small black vehicle. After the call was cleared a warrant check was completed and discovered that Mr. Kohler has several outstanding warrants including a warrant for felony assault. Further investigating, it was also discovered that Ms. Kohler has a DUI suspended license and is currently driving with her 2 year old son in the vehicle. A search was done through Penn Dot records and a current photograph observed of Ms. Kohler. A search of the area was conducted and Ms. Kohler was unable to be located.
While driving around the area of the call Ms. Kohler was observed driving a small black vehicle with a child seated in the backseat. She was observed driving Southbound on York Haven Road in the area of J & A MHP. I turned my marked patrol vehicle around and attempted to catch up to Ms. Kohler. I pulled in directly behind her vehicle in front of her mother’s residence at 910 Locust Ave Lot #6. Ms. Kohler was observed removing her child from the child seat in front of Lot #6. The vehicle was a 1996 black Honda with Pennsylvania registration of JFS9343. I questioned Ms. Kohler about the incident at 21 Dunkle Avenue. I then advised Ms. Kohler that she has active warrants for her arrest. While observing Ms. Kohler actions I observed that she had a moderate odor of an intoxicating beverage about her breath and person. I observed that she had relaxed inhibitions and was light hearted and joking. When questioned on this Ms. Kohler reports that she had one alcoholic drink, “4Loco”, earlier today. She was requested and agreed to perform the standardized field sobriety tests. The tests yielded many clues that Ms. Kohler was intoxicated to a level that would prevent her from driving safely. The romberg balance test was conducted and Ms. Kohler estimated the passage of time of 30 seconds in nine seconds. While performing the test, eye lid tremors were observed. Ms. Kohler had very red and blood shot eyes. Ms. Kohler was requested to give a breath sample into a PBT device and agreed. The results of the test was that her level of alcohol was twice the legal limit.
Arrangements were made to have a family member respond to the scene to take custody over K.R., Ms. Kohler’s two year old son. When K.R. was removed from the scene Ms. Kohler was taken into custody without incident. She was transported to Memorial Hospital where Ms. Kohler was read over the implied consent form. She agreed to submit to a blood test to determine her alcohol and drug levels. At 1935 Hrs. a blood sample was taken and Ms. Kohler was then transported to the York County Booking Center. Ms Kohler was turned over to the Sheriffs department for processing and to await seeing a judge. Upon running Ms. Kohler’s driving record it was confirmed that she was arrested for DUI on November 13, 2009 and currently has a DUI suspended license.
At approximately 2200 hours I was traveling west on York Haven road, behind a black Kia bearing Pennsylvania registration KFS-7455. While traveling behind the vehicle in the 1300 Block of York Haven road, I observed the vehicle swerve onto the fog line six different occasions, each time returning to its original land of travel. These violations occurred between the 1300 Block and 1800 Block of York Haven road.
I made contact with the operator Nicole Heigl, who was late identified by Pennsylvania driver’s license number 29616020. While speaking with Ms. Heigl she advised me that she was coming from a friends house. When I asked Ms. Heigl how much she has had to drink, Ms. Heigl admitted to two or three glasses of Stella Beer. While speaking with Ms. Heigl I observed her having red blood shot eyes.
A short time later I requested Ms. Heigle exit the vehicle to perform field sobriety tests to which she agreed. Field sobriety tests yielded clues of impairment. A PBT was administered which detected the presence of alcohol.
Ms. Heigl was then transported to York Central Booking Center. Once there I read the DL-26 form verbatim and requested Ms. Heigl to submit to a chemical test of blood. Ms. Heigl agreed to do so and at 2255 hours on 08/03/2017 Phlebotomist Jalyssa Caban removed two tubes of blood from Ms. Heigl’s left arm. Tubes were sealed in our presence and sent to NMS Labs for analysis.
Received Toxicology report, Nicole Heigl had a BAC of .096% at the time of testing.
At approximately 1954 hours, I was traveling south on Pines Rd., when I observed a black Volkswagen with its driver side head light out. I turned around and began to follow the vehicle north on Pines Rd. The vehicle then made a right turn onto Red Mill Rd., at that point I activated my emergency lights and siren to conduct a traffic stop in front of 1000 Red Mill Rd. The Volkswagen was bearing Pennsylvania registration JLL3792.
Upon contact with the driver I smelled an odor of burnt marijuana coming from inside of the vehicle. I asked the driver for his license, registration, and insurance and he stated that he did not have a license. He explained that he was pulled over yesterday and his license was repoed by Penndot, so the Officer took his license. The driver then gave me his name and was identified as Tyler Howell. I asked Mr. Howell where he was coming from and he stated from his moms house where he was doing yard work. I asked when the last time he smoked marijuana was and he stated two days ago. I again asked Mr. Howell when the last time he smoked marijuana was and he stated 3 or 4 hours ago before doing the yard work.
Field sobriety tests were administered which yielded clues of drug impairment, which rendered him incapable of safely operating a motor vehicle. He was placed under arrest for DUI.
I transported Mr. Howell to Memorial Hospital, where I read the DL-26 implied consent form verbatim to Mr. Howell. Mr. Howell agreed to submit to a chemical test of blood. At 2108 hours on 08/27/2017, Phlebotomist Lana Rauhauser, withdrew two tubes of blood from Mr. Howell’s right arm. Tubes were sealed in our presence to be sent to NMS labs for analysis. I then transported Mr. Howell to York Central Booking to be processed and released.
Received toxicology report from NMS Labs, which revealed Mr. Howell had Delta-9 Carboxy THC 12 ng/mL, and Delta-9 THC 1.8 ng/mL present in his blood at the time of testing.
Driving history revealed that Mr. Howells operating privileges were suspended.
On August 26, 2017 at approximately 0001 hrs. I witnessed a gray Pontiac sedan traveling north on Old Trail Rd. in the area of I-83 SB (Exit 33). The vehicle passed in front of my stationary patrol vehicle and I noticed the license plate was not illuminated as required. I conducted a traffic stop on Yocumtown Rd. near Conley Ln. The vehicle was bearing Pennsylvania registration JJV1924.
Upon making contact with the driver, Breanna Lee, I immediately detected an odor of marijuana coming from inside the vehicle. Lee advised me that she and her passenger were coming from a friend’s house where she consumed two beers. I also detected an odor consistent with someone who had recently consumed alcohol on Lee’s breath as we spoke. Lee was asked to exit the vehicle and participate in field sobriety tests. She stepped to the rear of her car at which point I told her I smelled marijuana in the vehicle. She advised me that there was marijuana and a “bowl” in the center console of the vehicle and that it was hers. Lee’s conjunctiva was noted to be red, a known indicator of recent marijuana use.
Lee was asked to perform several field sobriety tests. The results of these tests detected signs of impairment in Lee to include lack of ability to follow simple instruction and lack of ability to divide attention among tasks.
Lee advised that she smoked a “bowl” of weed a short time before she left her friend’s house and drove the vehicle. A brown/greenish coating was noted to the back of the tongue. This is also an indicator of recent marijuana ingestion.
Lee was placed under arrest for DUI and handcuffed behind her back. A search of the vehicle was conducted. During said search, a play dough container containing marijuana and a smoking device were found in the center console. Breanna Lee admitted that these items were hers after being provided miranda warnings. The items were returned to the police station and logged into evidence.
Upon arrival at the York County Booking Center, I requested that Breanna Lee submit to a chemical test of blood. She was read the DL-26 form and agreed to the blood test. At 0142 I witnessed VAT Jalyssa Caban draw blood from the arm of Breanna Lee. This sample was packaged and will be sent to NMS labs for analysis.

The report showed that at the time of testing, Breanna Lee had 13 ng/mL of Delta-9 THC, 79 ng/mL of Delta-9 Carboxy THC and 10 ng/mL of 11-Hydroxy Delta-9 THC in her blood.
On 09-17-2017 at 2134 hours, I was on patrol in the area of Old Trail Road and Roxberry Road. I observed a blue Toyota sedan turn onto Roxberry Road from Old Trail Road. This vehicle’s left registration lamp was not illuminated. While I was following behind the vehicle, I observed it cross over the center yellow line multiple times. On multiple occasions this vehicle was half way into the other lane of travel. A traffic stop was initiated near the intersection of Roxberry Road and Kise Mill Road. This vehicle did not initially pull off to the side of the roadway when I activated my emergency lights.
Upon making contact with the driver, he advised he did not have a drivers license. I asked if he was suspended and he advised he was not. While at the window of the vehicle, I could detect a slight odor of an alcoholic beverage. The driver identified himself as Jared Holtzapple. Upon running Holtzapple, it was determined his drivers license was suspended from a previous DUI charge. Holtzapple was asked to provide police with a PBT sample. The PBT indicated there was alcohol on Holtzapple’s breath. Holtzapple then was asked to perform field sobriety tests.
Holtzapple showed multiple signs of impairment on the field sobriety tests, including a lack of balance and difficult time following simple instructions. After the field sobriety tests, Holtzapple admitted to having 2 glasses of wine on this date. Holtzapple was arrested for DUI and driving while on a DUI suspended license. Holtzapple was transported in my patrol car to York Hospital for a blood draw. A DL-27 form was read to Holtzapple due to him being a DUI suspended driver. Holtzapple consented to the blood draw. At 2239 hours blood was taken from Holtzapple’s right arm. This blood was taken by Samantha Hall, a vascular access tech at York Hospital. This blood was boxed and sealed in my presence and was sent to NMS labs for testing.
Holtzapple was then taken to the York County Booking center where his custody was turned over to the York County Sheriffs. Upon searching Holtzapple’s driving record, it was determined he had a previous DUI in 2013, making him target 25.
On 09/09/2017 I was working patrol in full uniform in unmarked patrol unit number fourty-nine.While in the area of Old Trail Rd. and Sipe Rd. a red vehicle passed me as I was waiting to pull out on Old Trail Rd from a pull off.
I was traveling West on Old Trail Rd. then West on Lewisberry Rd. I got closer to the red vehicle and observed the vehicle to be jerky in it’s movements. While traveling behind the red vehicle I observed it to cross over the yellow line approximately six times and cross over the white fog line one time. At one point I could hear the engine of the red vehicle rev, then the vehicle took off. I then activated my emergency lights and siren. The vehicle came to a stop in the 3200 block of Lewisberry Rd. The vehicle was a red Mustang bearing PA registration KCG9506.
I approached the vehicle on the driver’s side. I asked the male for his drivers license, registration and insurance. The male handed me his driver’s license, PA- 24943760. The photo on the drivers license matched the driver identifying his as Charles W. Scott IV. Mr. Scott then handed me the pink slip as his registration card because he just bought the vehicle. Mr. Scott then handed me what he said was his most valid registration for the vehicle but it was actually the insurance cards for another vehicle. I then asked Mr. Scott where he was coming from. Mr. Scott advised he was coming from Rutter’s but prior to that he was coming from the Knotty Pine. Mr. Scott advised he had two beers with his buddy there. I then advised Mr. Scott I was stopping him because he was erratic in his driving and crossing over the yellow line and fog line. I then asked Mr. Scott if he was willing to do some tests for me so I knew he was safe to drive. Mr. Scott advised he would.
Field sobriety tests completed by Mr. Scott showed signs of him being impaired and incapable of safely operating a motor vehicle. A PBT was provided to Mr. Scott. The result of the PBT was 0.117% BAC.
I then advised Mr. Scott to turn around and place his hands behind his back. I placed handcuffs on Mr. Scott with his palms facing outwards, double locking them to ensure proper fit. I then advised Mr. Scott he was being arrested for DUI. I then had Mr. Scott sit on the rear passenger side of my vehicle.
I then went to secure the Mustang. I did not want to leave Mr. Scott’s wallet out in plain view so I opened the center console to the vehicle to put the wallet in it. When I opened the center console I saw a smoking device used to smoke marijuana.
At 0009 hours I transported Mr. Scott to the booking center. At 0026 hours I arrived at the booking center. I then read Mr. Scott the DL- 26 form.

On 09/04/2017 I was working patrol in full uniform in unmarked patrol unit fourty-nine. I was enforcing the stop sign and no right turn at the intersection of N. Front St. and Locust St.
It should be noted that this intersection is posted in two locations indicating no right turns. One being posted at N. Front St. at Pennsylvania Ave., the other at the intersection with the stop sign of N. Front St. and Locust St.
I observed a silver SUV stop at the stop sign, then make a right hand turn from N. Front St. onto Locust St. I went after the vehicle for the right hand turn violation. I caught up to the vehicle at Locust St. and Hydro Plant Dr. Once behind the vehicle I activated my emergency lights and siren. The vehicle a silver Honda CRV bearing PA registration KJE3468.
I approached the SUV on the driver’s side. I advised the driver who I was and the stop was being recorded. I asked the driver, a black male for his driver’s license, registration and insurance card. As I was speaking with the driver I could smell an odor of burnt marijuana coming from the Honda. The driver advised me he has his identification card, I asked if that was his driver’s license. The driver advised it was not. I asked the driver if he has a driver’s license, he advised he does not, he only has his identification card. The driver handed me a Maryland identification card numbered T234067139917. The photograph on the Maryland identification card matched the driver as Anthony Tisdale. I asked Mr. Tisdale if he has a driver’s license at all, he advised he does not but he did just pay his restoration fee. I then advised Mr. Tisdale the reason I was stopping him was being he made a right hand turn at a no right turn intersection. When I first approached the vehicle I saw both passengers had cigarettes lit. During my interaction with them I did not see either of them smoke the cigarette, there was also a heavy smell of cologne. I then asked Mr. Tisdale if there was anything illegal in the Honda. Mr. Tisdale advised there was not. I advised Mr. Tisdale that once I walked up to the Honda I could smell marijuana. Mr. Tisdale advised that was because it was before we hand gotten in the car. I asked Mr. Tisdale what he meant by before they got in the car. Mr. Tisdale advised he had smoked before he had gotten in the Honda but he does not have anything on him right now. I asked Mr. Tisdale if he smoked marijuana before he drove today, he advised a while ago. I asked Mr. Tisdale how long ago, he advised like three or four hours ago. I then had Mr. Tisdale get out of the Honda. I asked Mr. Tisdale again how long ago he smoked, he advised probably four hours ago. I then patted Mr. Tisdale down for any weapons. No weapons were found during the pat down of Mr. Tisdale. Mr. Tisdale advised he had smoked marijuana on a break at work. I then asked Mr. Tisdale if he was willing to do some tests for me, he advised he was.
Field sobriety tests completed by Mr. Tisdale showed signs of being impaired and incapable of operating a motor vehicle safely. It should also be noted Tisdale had a brown tongue which is consistent with someone who has recently smoke marijuana. I asked Mr. Tisdale how much marijuana he smoke. Mr. Tisdale advised he smoked half a J, half a blunt.
I then advised Mr. Tisdale he was being arrested for driving under the influence and to put his hands behind his back.

On September 4, 2017 at approximately 1538 hrs. I was traveling south on Valley Green Rd. in the area of the Valley Green Golf Course when I passed a silver Mazda SUV traveling the opposite direction. When the vehicle passed me, I noticed it had no inspection or emission stickers displayed on the front windshield. I turned around at the gold course and attempted to catch up to the vehicle. The vehicle was again seen turning onto Black Walnut Dr. I conducted a traffic stop with this vehicle in the area of Black Walnut Dr. and White Oak Ln. The vehicle was noted to bear PA registration JXZ3322.
Upon approaching the vehicle, I made contact with the driver who was identified as Scott Taylor by an expired PA driver’s license card he handed to me. He immediately acknowledged that he knew his inspection was out however, pointed to the rear of this vehicle. He advised he had a new windshield installed but the inspection expired the end of August. I noticed that Taylor appeared nervous and was hyperactive. Additionally, I detected an odor consistent with someone who had recently consumed alcohol coming from Taylor’s breath. I asked Taylor if he had anything to drink today to which he initially advised no but then stated he had a drink at lunchtime near the Falls Hotel. I also noticed that Taylor’s pupils were unusually constricted. There were several empty pill bottles seen in the vehicle as well.
At this time I asked Taylor to step out of the vehicle and participate in field sobriety tests. Taylor agreed to participate in field sobriety tests. The results of these tests detected signs of impairment in Taylor. A preliminary breathe test was provided to Taylor which resulted in a positive reading. He admitted he had a “chug” of “corn whiskey” this afternoon. I offered for Taylor to participate in a drug influence evaluation. He appeared reluctant to do so and asked what drugs we would test for. At this point he asked me if I would only test for opiates because he’s done some other things that were illegal. He admitted to smoking “weed” the previous day as well as today around 11:00 AM and took his “daily medicine” including his Adderrall.
At this time Taylor was placed under arrest for DUI. I then transported Taylor to York Memorial Hospital where I read him the DL-26 form. Taylor agreed to submit to the blood test. At 1645 I witnessed phlebotomist Cathy Weyant draw blood from the right arm of Taylor. The two gray top tubes were sealed and packaged for transport to NMS labs for analysis.
On September 15, 2017 I received the toxicology results from NMS labs for Scott Taylor. The report was composed by Jolene Bierly, Forensic Toxicologist and stated that at the time of testing, Scott Taylor had a BAC of 0.042%, 1.1 ng/mL of Delta-9 THC and 6.9 ng/mL of Delta-9 Carboxy THC.
