Port Matilda woman convicted in DUI case
Monday, March 4, 2013
BELLEFONTE - Jacqueline M. Zeigler, 49, of Port Matilda was convicted Friday of one count of driving under the influence, graded as an ungraded misdemeanor, and a summary offense of careless driving, following a bench trial before Judge Jonathan D. Grine.
Zeigler was charged with the offenses for an incident that occurred April 15, 2012, at approximately 2:32 a.m. at 300 Fraternity Row, State College. Zeigler was stopped in the pedestrian crosswalk in the intersection, blocking traffic when a State College police officer pulled up behind her.
When the defendant pulled out of the intersection, she made a wide left turn onto Fraternity Row and then a sharp right turn, and her vehicle struck the curb, causing it to go up and over the curb. Zeigler then accelerated into a gravel lot where there were several pedestrians.
She was stopped by the State College and Penn State police, who smelled alcohol on her breath and noticed that she had glazed eyes, slurred speech and poor balance. Zeigler refused consent to have her blood drawn for a blood alcohol test.
Sentencing is scheduled for May 9 at 9 a.m. in front of Grine.
