third DUI charge
WINHALL — Police said a Danby man with two prior charges of drunken driving had a blood-alcohol content three times the legal limit when he was pulled over on Route 30.
George L. Savage Jr., 49, pleaded innocent Monday in Rutland criminal court to a felony charge of drunken driving, third offense, as well as a misdemeanor charge of driving with a suspended license.
Police said they stopped Savage on Route 30 in Winhall for speeding and crossing the double line Saturday night. Police said Savage was slurring his words, slow to respond to questions and had a cold, half-full beer in his cup holder.
Police said a breath test showed Savage had blood-alcohol content of .245, more than three times the legal limit of .08 for driving.
Savage was held in Rutland hail on $2,500 bail until his arraignment Monday. He is now free without bail, but must check in daily with Manchester police for alcohol testing.MORE IN This Just InRICHARD'S POOR ALMANACK: Workers on this day in 1984 in a Cheshire, England, peat bog find well-preserved human remains at least 2,000 years dead, born this day in 1843, Robert Todd Lincoln, eldest son of the president, present at three assassinations. 0Rutland Herald content editor Rich Alcott uploads data direct to your head: Workers on this day...
