Police Charge Couple With DUI in Same Car

Police say a western Pennsylvania couple was driving drunk - in the same car, on the same night, after they switched seats shortly before they were pulled over.

Online court records don't list attorneys for 33-year-old Jason Misencik and 24-year-old Crystal Seachrist, who live together in New Sewickley Township.

They both face a preliminary hearing Aug. 30 on drunken driving and other charges filed recently in connection with a July 4 traffic stop.

The Beaver County Times reports that's when police saw Misencik swerving before he pulled into a parking lot and could be seen switching seats with Seachrist, who was driving when police pulled over the car moments later.

Police say both smelled of alcohol and were incapable of safe driving, and that Misencik's blood-alcohol content exceeded the state limit though Seachrist's was slightly below.
