Arrested Monday 8/24/15 released Thursday 8/27/15.
Locust St in Lebanon PA is where the bums hang out. 600 block is bracketed by a soup kitchen and a rescue mission. Looks like Bernie is nearing the...end of the line.
PUBLIC DRUNKENNESS Bernie Ellis Jr., 52, Lebanon, was charged in the 600 block of Locust Street at 3:17 p.m. Monday, police said.
In Pennsylvania, people commit the offense of public drunkenness by appearing in public under the influence of alcohol or a controlled substance (except drugs taken by prescription) when they are so intoxicated that they pose a danger:
• to themselves or others
• to property, or
• of annoying others.
For example, a drunken person alone in a city park who poses no danger to him or herself or anyone else, and no danger of annoying anyone else, could not be arrested or prosecuted for public drunkenness.
3:17 p.m. on a Monday!!! - must have been a late 3 martini lunch with "industry executives".
