SANDUSKY

A Sandusky man reportedly under a driving suspension with limited privileges was caught driving drunk while on his way to an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting.

After submitting to a breathalyzer test, the man registered a .101 BAC reading, according to reports.

Anthony G. Blake, 44, 500 block of Pennsylvania Avenue was pulled over after being spotted by a Perkins police officer who recognized Blake and realized his driving privileges were suspended.

It was later found that Blake had a court order for limited driving privileges and was reportedly on his way home to get his wallet after which he planned to head to "AA."

The officer saw Blake's license plate vehicle registration was partially covered by a decorative license plate frame and decided to pull him over.

Blake reportedly smelled of alcohol. He submitted to more than one field sobriety tests, but stopped in the middle of one because people were watching.

Blake reportedly told the officer he was not drunk and that he had his last drink around 4 a.m.

He was pulled over at 9:52 a.m.

His car was searched, seized and towed as were his license plates. He was advised of his court date and later cited for driving under suspension in addition to his OVI charge.
