Maine Man Allegedly Drunk At NH Court Appearance
PORTSMOUTH, N.H. (AP) — Authorities say a man facing a drunken driving charge in New Hampshire showed up for his court hearing intoxicated.
Police say Robert Will of Kittery, Maine arrived at court in Portsmouth on Tuesday to answer to charges including driving while intoxicated and driving with an open container of alcohol. He was given a portable breath test. Based on his blood alcohol concentration, the probable cause hearing was rescheduled.
The Portsmouth Herald reports that the 53-year-old Will’s lawyer says he needs to be sober.
Will was pulled over on June 10. Police say he did not have a valid license and had an open container of alcohol.
He was freed on $1,000 bail and ordered by a judge to refrain from alcohol and driving.
