FORD CITY — An Armstrong School District director arrested in September on DUI charges waived his right to a preliminary hearing on Tuesday before District Judge J. Gary DeComo.

James T. Rearic, 45, of West Kittanning, was charged with two counts of drivng under the influence and several summary driving offenses stemming from an incident in South Buffalo on Sept. 30.

According to the criminal complaint, Rearic was traveling north on Route 28 at 5:30 p.m. when he allegedly attempted to drive around a police road block at the scene of an earlier multi-vehicle accident. When a state police trooper pulled him over, Rearic told the trooper he thought the road was open.

The trooper conducted a field sobriety and preliminary breath test after he detected the odor of alcohol on Rearic's breath.

Rearic was found to have a blood alcohol level of .85 percent which falls within the range of the lowest level of general impairment.

This is his first DUI charge.
