Police said that shortly before 5 a.m. Sunday, while on patrol officers reportedly observed a vehicle traveling on South DuPont Highway that then drove through the yard and parking lot of a business. The vehicle then began traveling southbound on South DuPont Highway before police stopped him in the parking lot of a Super Motel 8. 

Police said they identified the driver as 28-year-old Thomas Shreppel of Zion Grove, Pa., and detected the smell of alcohol. Following standard field sobriety tests, Shreppel was reportedly taken into custody. He was transported to the Harrington Police Department for processing where he was charged with multiple traffic violations including driving under the influence of alcohol, failure to drive in proper lane and in proper direction, failure to obey traffic control device and failure to have registration card in possession.
