Pennsylvania Avenue man arrested for drunk driving

A 24-year-old Pennsylvania Avenue man was arrested for driving drunk and allegedly driving away after being pulled over to the curb in the 700 block of West Ferry Street late Tuesday.

Adam Markel was arrested as he got out of his vehicle near his home just before midnight, less than a half-hour after he had been pulled over on West Ferry Street for questioning. Markel, who registered a blood-alcohol level of 0.19 percent, more than twice the state’s legal limit, was charged with driving while intoxicated and his car was impounded by police.
