RIVERVIEW — A 33-year-old Wyandotte man with two previous alcohol violations was taken into custody at 3:05 a.m. Oct. 11 on Fort Street after a casual restaurant that did not serve alcohol reported that a drunken man was about to get behind the wheel.
The man, who smelled strongly of intoxicants, failed multiple standardized field sobriety tests. A preliminary breath test was administered, and the man had a blood-alcohol content of 0.143, almost twice the 0.08 limit for legally drunk in Michigan.
Because of two prior alcohol-related violations, the man’s license plate was confiscated and a paper plate was issued. His vehicle was impounded and towed, and he was arrested and held.
