An Iowa City man has been charged on Jan. 19 with operating a vehicle while being intoxicated.

According to an Iowa City police report, law enforcement responded the parking lot of Kum & Go, 513 S. Riverside Drive, where employees thought a man was suffering a medical condition inside his vehicle.

Matthew White, 22, 3042 Newport Road, was allegedly observed operating his vehicle in a confused manner in the parking lot. According to the report, upon contact with White, officers decided that White was displaying signs of intoxication rather than a medical condition.

After a sobriety test, White's blood-alcohol content was .359, more than four times the legal limit of .08. White refused to consent to DataMaster chemical testing, the report said. This is White's second OWI.

Second-offense OWI is an aggravated misdemeanor, punishable by up to two years in jail and a maximum fine of $6,250.
