Man busted for drink driving twice... in one night

Robert Brodnick was arrested for a second time just minutes after he had been released the first time.

POLICE HAVE CHARGED a man in western Pennsylvania with driving drunk twice in the same night — the second time about 15 minutes after they released him into the custody of a friend.

Online court records don’t list an attorney for 58-year-old Robert Brodnick, of Washington, Pennsylvania, who was arrested Monday night by the state police.

Police charge that Brodnick’s blood-alcohol limit was at least double what the law allows when he was arrested.

Trooper Joseph Christy says troopers released Brodnick to the custody of a “responsible party” but say that person must have dropped of Brodnick at his vehicle because the same trooper who arrested Brodnick saw him driving again.

Brodnick tells WPXI-TV that he had two or three beers and just wanted to drive his new car home.
