A Lone Tree man has been accused of driving while intoxicated.

Christian Krogh, 43, was charged Sept. 22 with third-offense OWI.

An Iowa City police complaint stated a concerned citizen called after reportedly noticing Krogh stumbling and falling in a parking lot near the 400 block of South Gilbert Street. 

After that, he allegedly got into a red Dodge truck with Iowa license plates and drove away.

Officers reportedly located Krogh on a public highway displaying symptoms of an intoxicated driver such as straddling the center white dashes. 

When officers confronted Krogh, he had a strong odor of alcohol on his breath, bloodshot watery eyes, slurred speech, and poor balance. 

Krogh admitted to consuming alcohol. He refused to take breath tests.

Third-offense OWI is a Class-D felony.
