In February, state police allegedly found Van Roy Lisbon sitting on his couch, drinking a can of beer and refusing medical treatment after a one-car, alcohol-related crash.

Now, the Boswell man is in trouble for allegedly driving under the influence again - this time after authorities said he showed up drunk at the Somerset state police barracks.

Lisbon, 52, had driven to the barracks on Wednesday for processing on his February drunken-driving charge and on related charges, a police release said.

When Lisbon arrived, troopers arrested him because they determined he was under the influence of alcohol, according to the police report.

Already, Lisbon faces charges stemming from the one-car wreck the night of Feb. 17.

With slurred speech and breath reeking of alcohol, Lisbon told police that he stopped at a bar for “one or two” beers before he headed home, veered off a road and rolled his truck, according to an affidavit of probable cause.

Police said his blood-alcohol level that night was .37 percent – more than four times Pennsylvania’s legal limit for driving.

Lisbon walked from the scene of the crash off of Blacks Hill Road to his home along Mexico Street and then called for help, court documents show.

Lisbon told police “that after having a crash like that he needed something to drink, and (he) took another drink of the Budweiser,” the affidavit says.

In that case, charges against Lisbon including drunken driving, careless driving and driving with an open alcohol container were bound to court earlier this month by Boswell District Judge Susan Mankamyer.

Lisbon did not immediately return calls for comment Monday.
