Police say Flick tried to run away during his arrest, so they also charged him with resisting arrest.
Police say Kimberly Joy Flick called the Meadville barracks about an hour later to make arrangements to pick up her husband, but was warned not to drive to the station if she, too, had been drinking.READ MORE: 2 Injured In Drive-By Shooting In Aliquippa
