Officer Accused of DUI

CARBONDALE — A police officer from Lackawanna County is accused of driving drunk.

Carbondale police said David Clark hit parked cars on Wayne Street last week.

Authorities said the officer who currently works for the Honesdale and Jessup police departments admitted to drinking.

Officers also said he was fired from the Carbondale police in 2006 for attacking a 73-year-old man.

Police chiefs in Jessup and Carbondale said they will wait until Clark’s case makes its way through the courts before deciding if he will be fired from either borough.

Clark is expected back in court in July.
