UNIONTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Police say a Pennsylvania man showed up drunk to be fingerprinted for a previous drunken driving charge and earned himself another one in the process.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 41-year-old Kevin Kroll, of Dunbar Township. He faces a preliminary hearing June 30 on charges of drunken driving and public drunkenness for the Feb. 20 incident.

That’s when Uniontown police say Kroll walked in smelling of alcohol when he arrived to be fingerprinted for a Jan. 9 drunken driving incident.

The officer smelled alcohol and gave Kroll a breath test - and later a blood test - both of which showed he was legally intoxicated.

Uniontown Lt. Tom Kolencik says, “To come in intoxicated is disrespectful to the judicial system and disrespectful to the police.”
