Johnson County deputies arrested an Iowa man after he allegedly drove while intoxicated for the third time.

Ryan Perkins, 29, Fairfax, Iowa was charged June 4 with third-offense OWI.

According to a complaint, a deputy was parked at a Swisher post office when Perkins allegedly passed in a red Chevrolet truck.

The deputy said he could clearly see Perkins drinking from a beer can.

After pulling the vehicle over, the deputy said Perkins had bloodshot, watery eyes, at which point he allegedly admitted to consuming seven beers and stated that he would not pass any sobriety tests.

The complaint said Perkins was convicted for OWI in 2004 and 2005.

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