Independence Township - Drunken hunting alleged

A Bridgewater man has been charged with hunting while intoxicated on Dec. 10.

According to a Pennsylvania Game Commission report, Jonathan W. Downey, 44, of 814 Mulberry Lane, was spotted around 8:30 a.m. carrying a rifle in Raccoon Creek State Park in Independence Township by state park ranger Joe Hamilton.

Since Downey was not wearing a fluorescent orange hat, a violation of the state's game codes, Hamilton stopped Downey, and then noticed that he smelled of alcohol and was unsteady on his feet, according to the report.

Downey had a blood-alcohol level of 0.142 percent, according to the report, which is over the level of 0.10 percent for hunting in Pennsylvania.

Downey was charged with drunken hunting and failure to wear fluorescent clothing.
