He is charged with DUI and resisting arrest. King was taken to Lancaster County Prison in lieu of $40,000 bail.

    Kudos to the Good Samaritan for potentially saving this mans life and possibly others. It's unfortunate that Mr. King was unable to understand how lucky he was.. Hopefully by now Mr. King learned a valuable lesson and apologizes.

    DUI will probably be thrown out if no one actually saw him driving the vehicle.
