    A Pennsylvania couple has been charged with drunken driving after police say the man's wife arrived drunk at the police barracks to pick up her husband following his arrest earlier New Year's Day.

    Troopers say they stopped 53-year-old Steven Flick, of Meadville, shortly after 1 a.m. Wednesday on Route 322 in Vernon Township – located about 90 miles north of Pittsburgh.

    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. Kimberly Flick disregarded the warning, arrived legally drunk, and was also charged with drunken driving, according to authorities.

    Online court records don't list attorneys for the couple, who don't have a listed phone.
