Washington, MO Resident Arrested for DWI in Eureka

A 55-year old man from Washington, Mo., was arrested by Eureka Police on suspicion of drunk driving as he was seen crossing the centre line of West Fifth Street multiple times with the SUV he was driving, according to authorities. The man was noticed around 9:20 pm on March 16 driving a 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe onto West Fifth Street from the White Castle restaurant parking lot. The officer halted his SUV upon observing the man having difficulties staying in the lane on the westbound direction of West Fifth Street.

The man was eventually stopped near the America’s Best Inn at 1725 W. Fifth St. He seemed to be under the influence of alcohol, admitting to the officer that he had consumed a couple of beers, as per the police statement. The suspect failed the field sobriety tests and was brought to the Police Station. During the booking process, it was found that he had previous arrests on suspicion of DWI.

Following the incident, the man was released to a designated driver sober enough to drive. He was served a summons to present himself at the Eureka Municipal Court for alleged charges of DWI and improper lane use, says Capt. Michael Werges.
