Twinsburg Man Charged With Super Drunken Driving
The information in this report is from the Twinsburg Police. An arrest does not mean a conviction.
A 53-year-old Twinsburg man was charged with a "super" drunken driving charge after he was pulled over for speeding, according to Twinsburg Police.
On Jan. 18, at about 11:50 p.m. a Twinsburg Police officer pulled over a car travelling 55 miles per hour on Ravenna Road, which is a 35-mile-per-hour zone.
While talking to the driver, the police officer smelled alcohol. The driver admitted to drinking, according to the report, and performed poorly on sobriety tests.
He was arrested and taken to the Twinsburg jail, where he performed a breath test and registered a .208, more than double the legal limit of .08 and enough to bump up the charge to a so-called "super OVI."
The man was released on bond and given a court date.
