A Muldrow man was arrested July 23 and charged with driving a motor vehicle while under the influence of alcohol, a police report reveals.
Daryl Stuart, 22, faces up to five years in prison, a fine of up to $2,500 or 28 days of treatment followed by 30 days of aftercare at the defendant’s expense, or all three. He was also charged with speeding, a misdemeanor carrying a penalty of up to 10 days in prison and a fine of up to $205.
At 12:30 a.m. on July 23, four Muldrow police officers heard a vehicle’s loud exhaust and an engine revving. They spotted an older blue pickup traveling 60-70 mph in a 25 mph zone. An officer gave chase in their patrol unit.
The truck turned into a driveway and stopped. The driver, Stuart, smelled of alcohol and had slurred speech. Stuart told the officer he wasn’t taking any field-sobriety or breath tests. When asked how much he’d had to drink, Stuart said “a few” and said he knew he would blow over the state’s legal limit.
