Philipsburg man convicted of DUI at trial Thursday

A 34-year-old Philipsburg man was convicted Thursday on two misdemeanor counts of driving under the influence.

A Centre County jury deliberated for about 40 minutes before finding Timothy A. Emigh Jr. guilty on both charges, according to the Centre County District Attorney’s Office.

Prosecutors said Emigh was charged stemming from April 2012 incident in which he drove up and over a six-inch concrete traffic divider on North Atherton Street, stopping traffic in both directions.

Emigh’s blood alcohol content was .198 percent, more than twice the legal limit in Pennsylvania.
