Md. Man Cited for 2 DUIs Within 5 Hours

Posted:

WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) - Police say less than five hours after receiving citations in a drunken hit-and-run crash case, a Westminster man was pulled over and charged with another DUI.

Police responded to a hit-and-run crash around 5:45 p.m. Monday in Westminster. A witness told police a van sideswiped a vehicle and kept going. Police pulled over 57-year-old Richard Elmer Meile, who officers say smelled like alcohol.

Meile was taken to a detention center where his blood alcohol content registered 0.25, more than three times Maryland's legal limit of 0.08. He was issued citations and released.

About 10:30 p.m., Meile was stopped in the same van and arrested again for driving while under the influence.

Meile faces multiple charges including reckless driving. He was released Tuesday on $25,000 bond.
