Two Baldwin Men Charged in Connection with DUI Incident

A Baldwin Borough police officer stopped motorist Aaron Robert Sohl, 31, of Churchview Avenue in Baldwin Borough, at around 12:54 a.m. on Thursday for failing to obey a stop sign at the intersection of Churchview and Willett Road, according to a police report.

That intersection is on the border of Baldwin and Brentwood boroughs.

The officer reported smelling alcohol while talking with Sohl and put him through field-sobriety and breath-analyzer tests, which he failed. He was arrested and taken to the Baldwin police station, where he twice failed additional breath-analyzer tests before being taken home and released.

Police are charging Sohl with suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol.

One of the passengers in Sohl's vehicle—Jeffrey Scott Henderson, 39, of Willett Road in Baldwin—was found to be in possession of a partially full can of beer, according to the report. Henderson will be cited for that offense.

Attempted Burglary on Grace Street

Baldwin Borough police are investigating an attempted burglary at a home in the 400 block of Grace Street that occurred sometime before 4:30 p.m. on Friday, according to a police representative.

A resident there found a window broken in the home's basement, but no entry was made.

The incident is under investigation.

Carrick Man, Mt. Oliver Woman Charged in Connection with DUI Incident

A Baldwin Borough police officer stopped motorist Tolani Jameil Humphrey, 21, of Madeline Street in Pittsburgh's Carrick neighborhood, at around 3:05 a.m. on Thursday for erratic driving on Becks Run Road, according to a police report.

The officer reported smelling alcohol and burnt marijuana while talking with Humphrey, who said that he had not recently been drinking alcohol but that the three other people in his vehicle had been. Humphrey also said, according to the report, that there was no marijuana in his vehicle but that there had been some there earlier.

Humphrey was found to have a valid driving learner's permit, and one of his passengers did have a valid driver's license.

Humphrey could not be put through field-sobriety tests at the scene, the officer reported, but he did fail a breath-analyzer test there, was arrested and was taken to Jefferson Regional Medical Center for a blood test (results pending).

Humphrey eventually failed field-sobriety tests while at the hospital, the officer reported, before being taken home and released. He is being charged with suspicion of DUI.

All three of Humphrey's passengers admitted to recently drinking alcohol, but only two of them were at least 21 years old. The third—Maegan Ann Wagner, 20, of Gorgas Street in the Mt. Oliver neighborhood—could not adequately provide police with a breath sample, according to the police report, but she is still being charged with underage drinking.

We need to get these DUI idiots off the streets, not by letting them off. You get their attention by hitting them harder with heavier penalties.
