Pennsylvania State Police were performing a roving DUI checkpoint when Beader was stopped. He was driving a Chevrolet Malibu at 1:40am. The checkpoint was situated at Route 62 and Buhl Farm Drive reported the Sharon Herald (6.30.13).

Police spotted Beader driving erratically and pulled him over. After taking him into custody, he was transported to UPMC Horizon, Farrell, to conduct a blood alcohol test. Results of the test have yet to be released to the public according to the Sharon Herald (6.30.13).

As stated in the Sharon Herald on June 30, no other arrests resulted from the roving checkpoint. Police believe Beader was on his way home after attending the Small Ships Revue in Sharon. After the blood test, the police released him and his wife picked him up.

"Hiring a lawyer after DUI charges may help lessen the consequences, especially if this isn't the first DUI arrest," says DUI lawyer Steven Kellis. "A conviction may cause issues with your employment, make it difficult to find affordable car insurance and comes with many other consequences."

A Philadelphia DUI lawyer will look for any mistakes made by the police officers and may be able to disprove the breathalyzer test accuracy. "Without the defense of an attorney, a DUI conviction often leads to harsher penalties," according to Kellis. If you've recently been arrested and charged with a DUI, it's time to let an attorney build your defense and protect your rights. Contact Steven E. Kellis of Kellis Law at 215-940-1200.
