Schuylkill County Man Was Falling Down Drunk in Public

His blood-alcohol level was 0.172%.

A Schuylkill County man was cited recently for public drunkenness after an incident in Shenandoah.

According to a court document obtained by The Canary, this incident happened back on May 14 in the 900 block of W. Coal St. in Shenandoah.

According to police, Angel Butz, 24, fell onto the sidewalk while trying to return home.

An ambulance crew arrived at the scene and had to perform a procedure known as a sternal rub to awaken him.

State Police say that when they showed up at the scene, Butz tried entering a home near where he fell. The problem was that it wasn’t his home.

Testing showed that his blood-alcohol rate was 0.172% and his breath smelled of alcohol when he spoke, police say.

Butz also needed help standing. Additionally, he allegedly had four 32-ounce glass bottles of Corona on him at the time.

A charge of public drunkenness was filed against Butz, for which he’ll be ordered to pay a fine of more than $270.
