A speeding vehicle in the 600 block of Manatee Avenue led to the arrest of a Bradenton man for driving under the influence.
Timothy Andricks, 27, was arrested for DUI after failing field-sobriety and blood-alcohol tests, according to a HBPD police report.
Officer Alan Bores was “directly behind” a silver Toyota, traveling 50 mph in a 35-mph zone, at about 3 a.m. May 28 when he pulled over Andricks’ vehicle.
Andricks told Bores he was coming from Anna Maria Island and had “nothing” to drink.
While Andricks was taking field-sobriety tests, he spoke of having balance problems from an accident nine years ago, the report stated.
After the tests, the officer placed Andricks into custody and transported him to the HBPD, where Andricks provided breath samples, measuring 0.183 and 0.168 BAC, according to the report. The legal limit is 0.08.
Andricks was transported to the Manatee County jail and released on $500 bond.
His arraignment is set for 8:25 a.m. Wednesday, June 28, at the Manatee County Judicial Center, 1051 Manatee Ave. W., Bradenton.
