Over the limit

The Chatham Daily News - - NEWS -

On Sun­day, po­lice re­ceived a traf­fic com­plaint af­ter the driver of a pickup truck was al­legedly ob­served drink­ing a beer. Po­lice lo­cated the ve­hi­cle on Rich­mond Street and ini­ti­ated a traf­fic stop. Upon ap­proach­ing the ve­hi­cle, of­fi­cers re­port­edly ob­served sev­eral open con­tain­ers of al­co­hol scat­tered through­out the ve­hi­cle. As a re­sult, a road­side test was ad­min­is­tered. The driver re­port­edly failed the test and was ar­rested for driv­ing with over 80 mg of al­co­hol in 100 ml of blood. The man was trans­ported to head­quar­ters for fur­ther test­ing, which re­vealed more than twice the le­gal limit of al­co­hol in his blood. The 53-year-old Chatham man was charged with hav­ing a blood-al­co­hol con­cen­tra­tion ex­ceed­ing the le­gal limit and was re­leased with a court date.
