Police discovered the man had been drinking, and that his breath alcohol level was at more than twice the legal limit for drivers. Also, they found that he previously had lost his driver's license.

The man was scheduled to appear in court later this week on charges of careless driving, driving while disqualified and driving with excess breath alcohol. He faces a potential prison term if convicted. Read more
