Police: .29 BAC Behind Brown-Daub Parking Lot Mishap

A Moore Township was arrested for driving under the influence the same day -- Oct. 12 -- he pleaded guilty to a summary offense of public drunkenness and similar misconduct.

A Moore Township man had a blood-alcohol content of .29 percent when his truck slowly rolled through the parking lot of Brown-Daub Chevrolet in Lower Nazareth Township and struck a Dumpster, according to police.

Coincidentally, Raymond L. Yankovich, 46, was arrested for driving under the influence the same day -- Oct. 12 -- he pleaded guilty to a summary offense of public drunkenness and similar misconduct, according to court records. 

On Oct. 12 around 5:35 p.m., Yankovich was found sleeping -- and uninjured -- behind the wheel of his 1993 Chevrolet Silverado, which sustained front-end damage.

According to Colonial Regional Police, witnesses spotted a truck slowly travel through the parking lot of Brown-Daub Chevrolet, 819 Nazareth Pike. The truck then struck a large Dumpster. 

Yankovich was unresponsive, but officers determined he was not injured -- just sleeping. Officers also detected an odor of alcohol. He was arrested -- and then charged -- for driving under the influence of alcohol after a blood test indicated a BAC of .29 percent. 

Yankovich pleaded guilty to public drunkenness and similar misconduct in October 2012 and 2010, according to court records. Both incidents occurred in Colonial Regional Police’s jurisdiction.

In October 2008, court records say, the Nazareth Borough Police Department charged Yankovich with public drunkenness and similar misconduct, disorderly conduct and defiant trespass.
