A Bethlehem Township man is facing drunken driving charges after he allegedly parked his car in a stranger’s back yard.
A homeowner on Cobblestone Lane in Lower Nazareth Township called police around 10:24 p.m. March 1 to report a vehicle—one he did not recognize—in his back yard.
When police arrived, 45-year-old Frederick Sandt was found sitting in the back seat of his vehicle. Sandt identified himself as the driver, police say.
In a press release, Colonial Regional Officer Andy Laudenslager notes that Sandt showed extreme signs of intoxication, had a difficult time walking, and smelled of alcohol when he spoke.
Sandt was taken to the Easton DUI Center for processing. He faces charges of driving under the influence and trespassing by motor vehicle, according to police.
