LANCASTER COUNTY, Pa – A Lititz man was convicted for driving while intoxicated in the Warwick Township shopping center parking lot and will serve up to 6 months in prison.
Charles T. Anton, 40, argued for the charges to be dropped because the offense happened in a parking lot.
However, during the incident, Anton drove into a woman’s vehicle before approaching her and offering concert tickets.
In the past, the Pennsylvania Superior Court ruled that the Shoppes at Kissel Village parking lot is a traffic way which governs DUI offenses.
Prior appellate rulings indicate a parking lot accessible to the public, even with parking restrictions are considered traffic ways.
Now, Anton will face charges.
