A man was arrested for DWI after allegedly striking objects and vehicles in a trailer park.
The local 911 office received several calls from trailer park residents about a driver in a white Ford truck striking, fencing, an electrical box, power lines and other vehicles. When officials arrived on the scene, they observed the white truck driving southeast without headlights in a field. When the truck stopped, deputies discovered the driver had abandoned the vehicle.
After searching the area, deputies found the 41 year-old man 300 yards from the abandoned truck. He was hiding in a ditch. The man stumbled out of the ditch mumbling that someone had slipped something in his drink and it was making him act crazy. Officials observed that the man seemed extremely intoxicated and discovered a rifle the man had left behind in the ditch, stated a New York Criminal Lawyer.
The man admitted to having drinks earlier in the evening, but refused to perform field sobriety tests because he stated he would not pass them. According to officials, he had a blood alcohol concentration of 0.239, which is three times the legal limit.
The man, who was driving with a suspended license, was arrested and charged with aggravated DWI, reckless driving, criminal damage and leaving the scene of an accident. No other details regarding the incident or about the man’s incarceration or bond are available at this time.
