In the early morning hours of Aug. 17, Towamencin Township Manager Rob Ford was heading back to his Denbeigh Drive, Hatfield home, wrapping up a night of alleged drinking that began at the Dodgers-Phillies game at Citizens Bank Park at 7:05 p.m. Phillies lost 4-0. In his travels from Philadelphia, Ford would have been nearly safe at home just after midnight, if it wasn't for a North Penn Area DUI Task Force checkpoint at Cowpath Road and Cindy Lane in Hatfield Township. Police said Ford was over the legal limit, blowing a 0.111, per toxicology results a week later. He also allegedly failed field sobriety tests, police said. Now, after a preliminary hearing in Souderton District Court Tuesday, Ford, 57, heads to trial in Montgomery County court on a misdemeanor count of general impairment DUI, per court records. A charge of DUI at a high rate of speed was dropped by Judge Kenneth Deatelhauser. As a first-time offender, Ford plans to apply for the Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition program, which results in the charge expunged from his record, according to The Reporter.
