Judge sets date for trial
STRUTHERS -- Judge James R. Lanzo of municipal court set a trial date of Feb. 5, 2005, for Michael A. Freeze, 34, of Eve Drive, who is charged with two counts of hitting cars with his vehicle and one count of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Freeze was arrested at his home Aug. 12 after two witnesses reported seeing his car hit two other vehicles, one parked on the street in the 500 block of Garfield Street, the other a car driven by an 18-year-old Hillsville, Pa., woman. The second vehicle was struck while stopped at a Center Street traffic light. The driver of the second car that was struck followed Freeze to his home. After officers arrived, the report states, Freeze was so intoxicated officers thought he'd be unable to complete field sobriety tests safely. At the police station, Freeze repeatedly refused a breath analysis test.
