Three Drunk Driving Arrests Made in One Night

Three Drunk Driving Arrests Made in One Night

Belleville police were busy on Friday, March 27, 2009, making three impaired driving arrests in the span of just a few hours.

The first incident occurred around 8 p.m. when a vehicle was pulled over, allegedly for driving erratically. The 46-year-old driver was arrested and charged with impaired driving, having more than the legal blood-alcohol content and driving while disqualified.

Only minutes later police responded to a complaint of a vehicle allegedly driving along the sidewalk and hitting blue boxes. Police arrested and charged a 23-year-old man with driving with more than 80 mgs of blood-alcohol.

A few hours later at around 11:30 p.m., a local bar reported a male left a taxi – which bar staff had placed him in – and drove away in his own vehicle. Police found the car and took the 53-year-old male driver to the station. He provided breath samples and was charged with impaired driving and having more than the legal blood-alcohol content.
