A West Liberty man has been charged after officers allegedly found him driving impaired in front of the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics.

Jovany Jacques, 27, was charged on Sunday with third-offense OWI.

According to an Iowa City police complaint, officers found Jacques in the driver’s seat of a running vehicle in front of the UIHC.

Jacques had blood-shot watery eyes, swayed while standing, and smelled of alcohol, the complaint said.

Jacques told officers he had driven his vehicle from the parking lot of the hospitals to the circle drive in front of the hospital.

He was previously convicted of OWI in 2005 and 2012.

Third-offense OWI is a Class-D felony.
