Hazleton Standard-Speaker publisher arrested for DUI

Hazleton Standard Speaker Paul Walser was found in his parked monster SUV -- with four flat tires (WTF?) -- in the Heights in the wee hours of Thursday. Bob Hughes of the Wilkes-Barre PD gets a little snotty with reporter Kris Wernowsky in the process, asking him "Is this a big news story or is it news because this guy is the publisher of a newspaper?"

The Standard Speaker has the distinction of having the worst newspaper Web site in northeastern Pennsylvania, which is quite a feat after you see the terrible Best Buy off-the-shelf sites of the TL, CV and Scranton Times-Tribune.

Does anyone out there have a picture of Walser? If so, e-mail it to
