Operating a vehicle
under the influence
Man was in accident: A Michigan man, 38, was charged with operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, blood alcohol content over the legal limit of 0.08 percent and failure to control following a one-vehicle accident on Hudson Drive, north of Hibbard Drive, at about 3:15 a.m. Aug. 26. No injuries were reported.
Police said the man was northbound when he drove his pickup truck off the right side of the road as the road curved to the left.
