Sheriff’s Report, May 11-13, 2016
May 10, 2016
A 27-year-old Ogden man was arrested over the weekend after Summit County Sheriff’s deputies caught him driving in the wrong direction along Interstate 80 with a blood alcohol level more than three times the legal limit.
At around 3:05 a.m., another driver contacted dispatch to report a vehicle traveling eastbound in the westbound lanes of the Interstate near mile marker 144. According to a report, deputies witnessed the driver nearly swerve head-on into another motorist before they were able to stop the vehicle near mile marker 145.
The man was reportedly covered in vomit and thought he was in West Valley. An initial test conducted by deputies revealed he had a blood-alcohol concentration of .245 grams per deciliter of blood. The legal limit is .08.
He was arrested and preliminarily charged with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
"This could have been terrible," Sgt. Ron Bridge said. "He was obviously extremely intoxicated and thankfully a passerby noticed he was driving in the wrong direction enabling deputies to intercept and take the corrective action."
According to the Summit County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to numerous other calls between Monday, May 2, and Sunday, May 8, including a report of a vehicle stolen from an apartment complex parking lot near Kimball Junction.
