Johnson County sheriff's deputies arrested a Marion man after he allegedly drove drunk for the third time.

Cameron Mitchell Eubanks, 26, was charged July 16 with third-offense OWI.

Deputies reported they noticed Eubanks steer his purple Plymouth Breeze across road lines and onto the highway's shoulder. Upon pulling the vehicle over, Eubanks reportedly told officers he swerved because he was texting while driving. Deputies said he later admitted to drinking 45 minutes prior to operating the vehicle.

According to a complaint, Eubanks had watery, bloodshot eyes, and performed poorly in many field sobriety tests. He had a preliminary breath test of .171, according to reports.

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