Lewistown man pleads guilty in DUI case

LEWISTOWN — Vincent Inzerillo Sr., 64, of Lewistown, pleaded guilty on Tuesday to driving under the influence and other related charges stemming from a Feb. 3 crash in Burnham.

Inzerillo and his attorney negotiated the plea agreement with Senior Deputy Attorney General Anthony Forray, which included a recommendation of at least seven days of home detention. Judge Aaron Gingrich sentenced Inzerillo to a minimum of seven days and a maximum of six months house-arrest with electronic monitoring, as well as financial responsibility for the costs of prosecution and fees as well as $550 in fines.

According to court documents, Inzerillo rolled his 2013 Lexus after losing control turning onto Dry Valley Road. Mifflin County Regional Police Department reported Inzerillo had an odor of an alcoholic beverage upon his breath.

According to court documents, Inzerillo agreed to a blood draw at the hospital for chemical testing, which revealed a blood alcohol concentration of .151. The passenger was transferred to Geisinger Medical Center in Danville for treatment of injuries.
