A man from Gastonia, North Carolina has been arrested after he drove from the road and passed out behind the wheel. The man was thereafter charged with habitual impaired driving due to the fact that he has previous DWI charges.
According to the police report, the man was driving on Belmont-Mount Holly Road just before 2:00 a.m. when he drove his vehicle from the road coming to a stop in someone’s yard. The car remained in drive while the driver was passed out in the driver seat.
Officers reported that the man smelled of alcohol, and he registered a .15 on the breath-test, which is almost double the legal limit.
When officers ran the man’s drinking and driving history, they found that he has three previous DWI convictions in the last decade. He is being charged with habitual impaired driving, DWI, drinking while driving and driving with a revoked license.
