A local man has been charged with third-offense OWI and possession of marijuana.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, Craig Owsley, 42, 2104 Western Road, was charged Tuesday.

Police officials reportedly caught up with Owsley after he ran a red light and was drifting back and forth several times between lanes. When police officials pulled Owsley over, they reported, he smelled strongly of alcohol, had bloodshot watery eyes, slurred speech, and admitted to having several beers and shots at Gabe's that night, according to the report.

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

Possession of marijuana is considered a serious misdemeanor.
