Towamencin Twp. Manager Faces Court Date on DUI Charge
A District Judge in Souderton has ordered a trial for Towamencin Township Manager Rob Ford, in connection with a DUI charge stemming from an August 17th DUI checkpoint by the North Penn Area DUI Task Force. Ford was stopped at Cowpath Road and Cindy Lane, where police offices say they could smell alcohol on Ford’s breath and that his eyes were red and glassy. Records show, Ford showed signs that he had consumed alcohol. Police took him in to custody. Ford, according to his attorney, will apply for the county’s Accelerated Rehabilitation Disposition Program for first time offenders. Following Ford’s completion of the program, along with the payment of fines and alcohol and highway safety classes, the charges will be removed from his record. Ford was coming from a Phillies game on the night of August 17th when he was stopped just after midnight. Ford will be back in court on December 4th. Towamencin Township Supervisor, Dan Littley says, the township is aware of the situation. He says, Ford was not on township time and he was not driving a township car.
