McKEAN, Pa. – An attorney was arrested for drunken driving as he left a hearing for a client accused of the same thing, state police said.

During Wednesday’s hearing in a McKean district justice’s office, a state police trooper noticed attorney Wayne G. Johnson Sr. might be drunk, said Trooper Robert Thompson.

The trooper, who was testifying in the DUI case against Johnson’s 20-year-old client, called a state police barracks. By the time backup arrived, Johnson was in his car, Thompson said.

Johnson failed field sobriety tests and was charged with drunken driving, Thompson said. His blood-alcohol level at the time of his arrest was not available Friday.
