SHIPPENSBURG, Pa., June 12 (UPI) -- A Pennsylvania man found guilty of drunken driving said he had no choice but to walk 25 miles in sweltering heat to his sentencing in court.

Stephen Shoemaker was supposed to be in court at 9:30 a.m. Tuesday to receive his punishment for a drunken driving conviction, WGAL-TV in Lancaster, Pa., reported Wednesday.

Judge Edward Guido said he had demanded an arrest warrant be issued after Shoemaker didn't show up until 3:30 p.m.

After the judge heard Shoemaker traveled on foot in the 90-degree heat and even had to rest at Carlisle Regional Medical Center for treatment of dehydration, he delayed the sentencing until July, WGAL-TV said.

Deputy Public Defender Anthony Adams said he offered to drive Shoemaker back to his home in Shippensburg, Pa.
