Pennsylvania Police chief who hit tree charged with DUI

Posted: Updated:

CAMP HILL, Pa. (AP) - A Pennsylvania police chief who crashed his truck into a tree and a mailbox has been charged with driving under the influence.
    
Camp Hill police Chief Douglas Scott Hockenberry was charged Monday with DUI following the Nov. 5 crash. Pennlive.com reports the Marysville resident has been on leave from his duties as police chief since he was reported to be under investigation.
    
Court records say Hockenberry had a blood alcohol level at twice the legal limit for driving at the time of the crash. Trooper Matthew Chester says he smelled a strong odor of alcohol on Hockenberry's breath.
    
Hockenberry has been a member of the Camp Hill police since 1996. He was promoted to chief in 2013.
    
A message seeking comment from Hockenberry wasn't immediately returned Tuesday.
