The following information was provided by the Lower Merion Police Department. Where arrests and charges are mentioned, they do not indicate guilt or a conviction.

A 27-year-old Ardmore man was arrested Feb. 9 in Bala Cynwyd and charged with driving under the influence and driving with a suspended license, police said at a Tuesday briefing.

The driver's rear windshield and side windows were obscured with snow when he was pulled over for speeding and swerving at Righters Ferry Road and Monument Road about 2:35 a.m. Feb. 9, police said.

When the officer asked for license and registration, the driver did not respond at first—then hit the gas and drove away without a word.

The officer pulled him over again, and the driver stopped in the middle of the road, police said. His blood-alcohol content tested at 0.13.
