| January 7, 2019

CRANBERRY TWP., Pa. (EYT) – State police say a caregiver for an elderly man arrived drunk at the Cranberry Township station on Saturday afternoon.

According to Franklin-based State Police, around 2:44 p.m. on Saturday, January 5, an elderly gentleman came to the police station located at 6724 US 322, in Cranberry Township, Venango County, to report his caretaker was drunk and not taking care of him very well.

His caregiver was with him and stayed in the car while he and his driver came into the lobby.

During the conversation with the gentleman, the caregiver – identified as 51-year-old Kimberley Hoffman, of Franklin – was observed to be passed out in the vehicle, police say.

A trooper attempted to wake up Hoffman to get a PBT (Preliminary Breath Test) reading. She became agitated, and after being told not to throw the PBT straw on the ground, she did so, anyway. She then exited the vehicle and was walking toward US 322. At this time, troopers apprehended her for her own safety, according to police.

She was charged with non-traffic citations for Public Drunkenness and Scattering Rubbish through Magistrate District Court 28-3-04.
