SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

A local man has been accused of driving a vehicle under the influence after drifting into another lane.

Ricardo Prosper Jr., 31, was charged Sunday with third-offense OWI.

According to a Johnson County Sheriff’s Office complaint, Prosper was drifting over the fog line into the right lane. A Johnson County official conducted a traffic stop and spoke to Prosper and a female passenger.

The official allegedly could smell a very strong odor of alcohol inside the vehicle. The complaint said Prosper smelled of ingested alcohol and had bloodshot, watery eyes.

Prosper admitted to officials that he drank beers at a club prior to driving. He also admitted to taking six or seven hits from a marijuana blunt, the complaint said.

Third-offense OWI is a Class-D felony.
