A Bradenton man was arrested Oct. 4 for driving under the influence of alcohol in Holmes Beach.

Cody Conachen, 34, was arrested at 2:03 a.m. in the 5800 block of Gulf Drive by a Holmes Beach police officer.

According to the HBPD report, the officer

observed the motorist driving south on Gulf Drive at a high rate of speed for wet road conditions. The license plate lights were not functioning.

The officer stopped the driver and reported Conachen smelled of alcohol and he mumbled and repeated responses to the officer’s questions.

The officer called for a backup officer to conduct a field sobriety test, which Conachen failed. His blood-alcohol level was 0.186 and 0.205 on two tests. The legal alcohol limit is 0.08.

Conachen was arrested for DUI, fourth or subsequent violation, with a blood-alcohol content over 0.15, transported to the Manatee County jail and released that day on a $1500 bond.

His arraignment has been set for Oct. 30.
