UPPER DARBY, Pa. (CBS) -- Upper Darby Mayor Barbarann Keffer was arrested Thursday evening in Upper Chichester Township on suspicion of DUI after a sergeant with the department confirmed to CBS3 this morning Keffer was observed driving on Route 322 with a flat tire and a broken headlight.

Keffer was given field sobriety tests, according to police, at which time an officer determined she was not capable of driving.

Investigators say she was taken to the police department where they say she refused a blood test.

According to an affidavit of probable cause, police pulled Keffer over after 9 p.m.

After exiting her Toyota Corolla for field sobriety tests, Keffer had "slurred speech, glassy bloodshot eyes, had unstable balance and a strong odor of alcoholic beverage emanating from her breath," an Upper Chichester officer wrote in the affidavit.
