DUI, Violation Uniform Firearms Act (VUFA) 10 March 2017
On 10 March 2017 at approximately 1920 hrs. Off. Reppert and other members of Platoon B were getting ready to clear from a disturbance call on the 400 blk. W. Orange St. While the Officers were standing on the sidewalk Off. Reppert saw that a black GMC Yukon had stopped on W. Orange St. by their location. There is no stop sign, light or other traffic control device on that block that would cause a driver to stop. Off. Reppert saw that the driver window of the Yukon was rolled down.
Off. Reppert called to the driver and asked if he needed anything. The driver asked Off. Reppert if he was okay. When Off. Reppert replied in the affirmative, the driver said "Good". The driver of the Yukon accellerarted the Yukon to the point that he caused the vehicle tires to squeal/ burn out. The driver continued to accelerate along W. Orange St. in excess of the posted 25mph speed limit.
Off. Reppert and others got into their respective vehicles and caught up with the Yukon on the 1000 blk. Columbia Ave. A vehicle stop was made at that location. Off. Reppert made contact with the driver, later identified as Robert Krushinski M/55 1100 blk. Columbia Ave. Lancaster, PA. A strong odor of an alcoholic beverage was detected on the driver. Other Officers that arrived saw a handgun on the floor of the vehicle, behind the center console and in reach of both the driver and the front seat passenger. The passenger was later identified as Edward Inshetski M/56 Gaithersburg, MD. The driver refused to keep his hands in view and was removed from the vehicle, as was the passenger. The handgun was secured and an unsealed bottle of vodka was found in the vehicle.
Krushinski refused to perform roadside field sobriety tests. He was placed under arrest and taken for a breath test. The results of the test were revealed to be 0.228% BAC for Krushinski. The passenger was also taken into custody as both he and the driver had access to the handgun and neither male possessed a permit to carry a firearm in concealed fashion, which includes carrying it in the passenger compartment of the vehicle.
As a result of this incident, Off. Reppert filed criminal charges against Krushinski and Inshetski before MDJ Roth.
