Underage man arrested for DUI in Athens

A 20-year-old Newnan was arrested Wednesday night for alleged drunken driving after a sheriff’s deputy stopped his car for driving recklessly on North Thomas Street, Athens-Clarke County police said.

A police officer arrived on the scene and administered roadside sobriety tests, which he reportedly failed.

He was arrested and taken to the police station, where the lower reading of two breath tests he took indicated a blood-alcohol concentration of 0.2 percent, according to police.

He was charged with DUI, underage consumption of alcohol and driving too fast for conditions, police said.
