Sheriff’s Report: Underage man arrested for suspected DUI, again

The Summit County Sheriff’s report.

A man under the age of 21 was arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol, nearly a week after he faced a similar charge. 

Summit County Sheriff’s Office deputies conducted a traffic stop on March 13 in Bear Hollow for a vehicle operating without insurance, according to a report from the Sheriff’s Office. Deputies made contact with the driver and noticed the smell of alcohol on his breath.

They discovered the man was driving on a suspended driver’s license, which happened after he was charged with driving under the influence the previous week, according to the report. 

The driver agreed to participate in a standardized field sobriety test, which he performed poorly on. He was arrested and transported to the Summit County Jail.
