Man arrested for OVI after driving through a yard

YOUNGSTOWN — A man was arrested for driving drunk with a blood alcohol content almost three times the legal limit early Sunday afternoon on the West Side.

An officer on patrol on McCullom Road about 2:20 p.m. noticed a car driven by 58-year-old Dennis Dyer of Youngstown that drove into a yard and back on to the road, reports state. When the officer went to pull him over, the car drove over a curb one more time before coming back on the road, reports said.

Dyer twice dropped his wallet when he got out of the car and told the officer he would have to pick it up, reports said. He said he had been drinking about 45 minutes before he was pulled over.

Reports said Dyer failed a field sobriety test because he could not stand. He was taken to the police station for a breathalyzer test, where he registered a blood alcohol content of .238. The legal limit in Ohio is .08.

He was released on summons and is being arraigned in Municipal Court today
