RIVERVIEW — A 30-year-old Mio man was arrested for operating under the influence of alcohol at 2:17 a.m. May 13 after he was found sitting on the curb of Pennsylvania Road, with his motorcycle next to him on the roadway apron.
The man said he was unhurt, but could not lift up his motorcycle, which was damaged and leaking gasoline, on his own. His eyes were watery and glossy, and he said he had been drinking earlier that evening at a local bar.
He failed multiple standard field sobriety tests. A preliminary breath test was administered, and the man had a blood-alcohol content of 0.277, more than three times the 0.08 limit for legally drunk in Michigan.
He was arrested, and taken to Beaumont Hospital, Trenton, for a blood draw. His motorcycle was impounded, and, as a repeat offender, his license plate was destroyed and a temporary plate issued.
