For the second time in two months, a Bradenton man was arrested for driving under the influence.
Mitchell Egan, 21, was arrested Nov. 8 for driving impaired in Holmes Beach after failing a field-sobriety test, according to a HBPD police report.
Egan was traveling north in the 2900 block of Gulf Drive at 2:45 a.m., when police observed him swerving over the solid, double center lines.
He told police he was taking Alprazolam and nearly fell during his field-sobriety test.
After his arrest, Egan was transported to the Manatee County jail, where he submitted to blood-alcohol concentration tests, which measured 0.214 and 0.217. The legal limit is a 0.08 BAC.
Egan told law enforcement he’d been driving on a permit for business purposes due to a DUI arrest in October.
According to a Bradenton police report, Egan was stopped Oct. 15 after driving at a high rate of speed on 26th Street West.
Egan was assigned a $620 bond. He remained in custody Nov. 15.
His arraignment is set at 8:30 a.m. Monday, Dec. 11, at the Manatee County Judicial Center, 1051 Manatee Ave. W., Bradenton.
