WYANDOTTE — A drunken driver who was swerving between lanes at 1:39 a.m. Oct. 6 on Fort Street near Antoine Street was arrested for operating while impaired and driving without insurance.
Police officers saw a white Ford Econoline van randomly crossing traffic lanes on Fort Street and initiated a traffic stop. The man, who was shaking, smelled of intoxicants, and failed multiple field sobriety tests.
A preliminary breath test was administered, and the man had a blood-alcohol content of 0.15, nearly twice the 0.08 limit for legally drunk in Michigan.
His vehicle was towed, and his female passenger, who called her mother for a ride home, was released at the scene.
The driver was then taken to the police station, where he was booked and held.
