A Philadelphia narcotics officer has been charged with drunken driving for a suburban crash following an Eagles game that injured a teen driving another vehicle.

Online court records don't list an attorney for 42-year-old Levaun Rudisill, who faces a preliminary hearing Oct. 30 before an Upper Darby district judge.

Upper Darby police say Rudisill was returning from a Sept. 15 football game when he crossed into oncoming traffic and hit a car driven by an 18-year-old boy head on. The other driver was treated and released for his injuries at Delaware County Memorial hospital.

Philadelphia police spokesman Lt. John Sanford says Rudisill has been restricted to desk duty while the charges are pending in court.

Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says Rudisill failed a field sobriety test and refused a blood test.
