Holmes Beach police arrested a motorist in the early morning Aug. 28 for driving erratically and allegedly under the influence.
Joshua Vondersaar, 42, was arrested at 1:06 a.m. in the 400 block of 73rd Street after he drove off the road in the 5300 block of Gulf Drive and again in the 7300 block of Palm Drive.
Vondersaar told police he had consumed a minimal amount of beer with friends at a bar and was on his way home. Police reported the man lost his balance and performed poorly on field-sobriety tests.
Officers transported Vondersaar to the Manatee County jail, where he refused to provide breath samples.
Vondersaar was assigned a $500 bond, which he posted, and he was released from jail.
Attorney Brett McIntosh entered a not guilty plea Aug. 29 for Vandersaar.
