A local man has been charged with third-offense OWI.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, John Seaba, 51, 822 2nd St., was charged Tuesday.

Police officials were called to the intersection of South Dodge and Bowery Streets after receiving reports of a motor-vehicle accident, according to the complaint. Seaba allegedly admitted to driving one of the vehicles involved in the crash, and when police officials checked the status of his license, they found it had been revoked in Iowa for OWI test failure.

Seaba allegedly had bloodshot watery eyes, smelled slightly of ingested alcohol, and admitted to drinking wine. Seaba has two prior OWI convictions in 1999 and 2011, the complaint said.

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.
