RIVERVIEW — A Riverview man who was stopped for driving 63 mph in a 35 mph zone at 2:45 a.m. March 12, on westbound Sibley Road near Young Patriots Park, was arrested for drunken driving.
The man, who freely admitted to drinking “quite a bit,” smelled of intoxicants, and his eyes were red and glossy.
He failed numerous standard field sobriety tests, and was unable to recite the alphabet, count backwards or balance without leaning on his vehicle.
A preliminary breath test was administered, and the man had a blood-alcohol content of 0.155, nearly twice the 0.08 limit for legally drunk in Michigan.
He was arrested and taken to the police station, where he was booked and held, and his vehicle was impounded and towed.
