An Enloe man caught the attention of a state trooper when he failed to stop the Chevrolet Tahoe he was driving at Main and Gilmer Street stop sign, and ended up going to jail just before midnight Friday for drunk driving.
While talking to the man, the Texas Department of Public Safety officer reported smelling alcohol on the man’s breath. The trooper also reported the man to have red eyes with dilated pupils.
The 38-year-old man allegedly admitted to he’d consumed a few alcoholic beverages prior to driving. He failed standard field sobriety tests and was taken to the county jail, where he tested 0.088 on an intoxilizer test, which is just over the legal 0.080 limit for blood-alcohol content, the trooper alleged in arrest reports.
Consequently, the Enloe man was taken into custody at about 11:39 p.m. May 31 and booked into the county jail for driving while intoxicated, marking the second time he’s been charged with DWI, according to arrest reports.
He had been released from the county jail Saturday afternoon, June 1, on $2,000 bond on the Class A misdemeanor charge, according to jail reports.
