[ARCHIVED] Elizabethtown Man to State Prison for 4 DUIs in 2 Months

Dallas Unangst

An Elizabethtown man will serve up to 5 years in prison for 4 intoxicated-driving arrests, which happened in 2½ months last year.

Dallas Lee Unangst recently pleaded guilty in Lancaster County Court to four separate DUI dockets. Lancaster County President Judge Dennis Reinaker ordered a 1-to-5-year state-prison term.

Unangst, 23, was charged between April 30 and July 19.

Northwest Regional police charged him twice in three hours in Mount Joy Township, on June 4 and June 5.

Police arrested him just before midnight, after a stop in the 1200 block of South Market Street. His blood-alcohol level was .176 percent, more than twice Pennsylvania’s legal limit for drivers.

Early in the morning of June 5, police noticed Unangst’s Ford Mustang pull into a McDonald’s in the 1900 block of South Market Street. Officers pulled up to the drive-thru window and recognized Unangst as the driver.

Unangst told police he was hungry and thought he had sobered up since the first arrest.

On July 19, Manheim Township police charged him for being drunk and under the influence of prescription pills when he was found passed out at the wheel of his Mustang at Taco Bell on Columbia Avenue.
