DUI

A Nichols man faces multiple charges following a Feb. 23 hit-and-run crash near the eastbound on ramp to Interstate 86 along Spring Street in Sayre Borough.

According to Sayre Borough police, 47-year-old Christopher Boyer had parked his car at the Spring Street Dandy Mini Mart following the crash and left on foot carrying a backpack. Police found him walking through the nearby Williams Subaru lot and said he smelled of alcohol. Boyer told police he had drank half a beer before the crash, and spilled the other half on his lap during the incident. He later admitted to having smoked methamphetamine. Boyer had a suspended license due to previous DUIs in Pennsylvania.

A search of his bag revealed a glass pipe with suspected methamphetamine, a small baggie of methamphetamine, a snorting straw with methamphetamine residue, and a small tin jar with methamphetamine residue, according to police.

Police noted that this was Boyer’s sixth DUI arrest overall, and fifth within the past 10 years.

Police interviewed the other person involved in the crash, who told police they were traveling south when Boyer turned in front of them to try and get on the ramp.

Both vehicles involved sustained front end damage but were drivable.

He was charged with felony DUI: general impairment/incapable of driving safely — fourth offense, two counts of felony DUI controlled substance, misdemeanor accident involving damage attended vehicle/property, misdemeanor possession of controlled substance, drugs, device, or cosmetic, misdemeanor possession of drug paraphernalia, summary fail to stop and give information or render aid, summary driving while suspended DUI related, summary BAC .02 or greater — second offense, summary restrictions on alcoholic beverages, summary vehicle turning left, and summary careless driving.
