A 21-year-old Stafford man’s reckless behavior resulted in a South Stafford road being shut down, as well as, his arrest.

On June 14th, at approximately 5:49 p.m., Deputy E.E. West responded to Kellogg Mill Road for a single vehicle auto accident. The caller advised the driver smelled like alcoholic beverages. When Deputy West arrived on scene, she observed the vehicle in a ditch with damage to its front bumper. The road was shut down until the vehicle could be properly removed.

The driver advised he was traveling South on Kellogg Mill Road after work when the vehicle in front of him began to slow down. The driver attempted to slow down; however, his brakes were so bad he could not slowdown in time. In order to avoid a crash, he swerved into the ditch. The driver had red, glassy eyes, slurred speech, the strong odor of an alcoholic beverage on his breath, and admitted to consuming some Twisted Tea.

The driver was charged with driving under the influence with a blood alcohol content between .15 and .2, as well as, improper brakes. He was held at Rappahannock Regional Jail without bond.
