Iowa City police said they stopped Cruz-Castro for speeding.

Officers said Cruz-Castro had watery, bloodshot eyes and slurred speech and smelled of alcohol. The complaint said Cruz-Castro blew a .094 in a preliminary breath test.

Cruz-Castro has two prior OWI convictions stemming from September 2004 and September 2010.

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