- Officials say a borough mayor in Delaware County has been charged with driving under the influence after he allegedly hit a vehicle and got away from the scene of the crash on foot.

Charges were filed against Upland Mayor Michael Ciach after police say he rear-ended a car that then struck two other vehicles on Friday in the city of Chester.

Upland is a neighboring borough.

Officials say Ciach was arrested by responding officers while wandering the streets of Chester at about 4am. He was released on his own recognizance and will be mailed a summons for his arraignment date.

FOX 29 has reached out to Ciach for comment, but he has not responded.
