DRIVING UNDER THE INFLUENCE (DUI):
The LBPD patrol function has filed a criminal complaint against Carolyn Elise BERTRAND (age 28) of Lititz alleging the crime of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) and the summary traffic offenses of Prohibiting Text-Based Communications and Roadways Laned for Traffic.
On 03/31/2019 at 4:41 AM, members of the LBPD were dispatched to the 400 Block of East Main Street (SR0772) after BERTRAND struck a legally parked and unoccupied vehicle. BERTRAND was not injured as a result of the crash but her vehicle needed towed from the scene. During the course of the investigation it is alleged that BERTRAND was found to be under the influence of alcohol and she was taken into custody. BERTRAND was transported to the LBPD where she provided evidential samples of her breath which indicated a 0.134% BrAC. BERTRAND was subsequently released from custody and she has been summoned to appear in DUI Central Court for preliminary arraignment and a preliminary hearing.
BERTRAND is presumed innocent.
