Iowa City police charged a man with drunk driving after he allegedly backed into a parked car.

Police charged Lawrence Taylor Jr., 49, 1960 Broadway Apt. 1C, with third-offense OWI.

According to reports, police arrived at the scene to find Taylor standing with a security officer.

Security told police he watched Taylor back into a parked car while attempting to park his own.

Taylor allegedly smelled of alcohol, swayed while standing, and had slurred speech, police said.

Taylor failed all field sobriety tests and had a blood alcohol concentration of .21, according to reports. The legal limit is .08.

Third-offense OWI is a Class D felony, generally punishable by up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $10,000.
