A South Range man accused of driving drunk for the eighth time will be arraigned in Douglas County Circuit Court.
Jack William Moore, 49, faces one count of eight offense operating while intoxicated and misdemeanor counts of possession of drug paraphernalia and operating while revoked.
According to the criminal complaint: Deputy Mitch Olson of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Department was sent Oct. 19 to check on a vehicle parked in the middle of Crossover Road in Hawthorne for about half an hour.
The driver, identified as Moore, appeared to be sleeping with his head against the driver’s door. Moore told the deputy he was headed home but had stopped the truck because he was too drunk. After refusing to perform field sobriety tests, Moore blew a 0.25 on a preliminary breath test. Olson also found a glass pipe used for smoking marijuana in a cup holder on the floor of the vehicle.
The South Range man has seven prior operating while intoxicated convictions and his driver’s license was revoked at the time of the incident.
Cash bond of $1,000 was set at Moore’s initial appearance Oct. 19. His next court appearance is Jan. 3.
