Police charged a man with his fifth OWI after officers found his truck stuck in the mud.

Robert McDowell, 42, Kalona, was charged Sunday with third-offense OWI.

According to police reports, McDowell had been drinking in his truck as he drove through Lower City Park.

He allegedly left the paved surface and stuck his vehicle in the mud. Police found McDowell intoxicated in the driver’s seat, police said.

McDowell could hardly stand, police reported, and he was too intoxicated to complete all field sobriety tests. He allegedly blew a blood alcohol content of .233.

He has four previous convictions for OWI in the past 12 years.

Third-offense or greater OWI is a Class D felony generally punishable by up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $9,375.
