He submitted to a portable breathalyzer and his blood alcohol content was 0.166.
During various field sobriety tests the trooper reported Madama “had a difficult time standing in the instructed position” and raised his arms for balance.
The trooper took Madama to the Hamilton Post, where he refused a second breathalyzer test. He was charged and summoned to court on March 14.
Madama was scheduled to be arraigned in the Fairfield court today, but his attorney Jeff Meadows asked for a continuance and a pretrial conference, which has been scheduled for March 29.
Madama has appealed his automatic license suspension and asked that the suspension be stayed.
Township spokeswoman Barb Wilson said Madama, who has been on the force since 1999, reported the arrest to his superiors.
“It was brought to the attention of command staff that Marc Madama was cited for OVI early Sunday morning,” she said. “He is on administrative duties until the matter is resolved.”
West Chester Twp. Trustee Board President Mark Welch said the township has a policy no one will speak on matters like this until things have been resolved.
