A DUI checkpoint in Hermitage ended with one arrest, and the offender was a Mercer County commissioner.

Pennsylvania State Police said Brian Beader is facing charges of drunk driving after a stop Saturday morning at 1:41 a.m.

His 2010 Chevy Malibu was pulled over as part of a roving sobriety checkpoint on Buhl Farm Drive and Route 62.

Police said the 43-year old Beader was driving erratically and appeared intoxicated.

Blood alcohol results won’t be available for a week.

Beader is one of three Mercer County commissioners.
