Harrington resident arrested for DUI

HARRINGTON – Gary R. Carter, 40 of the 1200 block of Gallo Road in Harrington, was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol June 29 along South DuPont Highway.

Harrington Officers were advised to be on the look out for a black dodge Dakota pickup truck traveling on South DuPont Highway towards Harrington and the vehicle was possibly being operated by an intoxicated person.  Police searched the area and located the truck in the parking lot of Verizon located on South DuPont Hwy.

Officers then observed a subject get into the vehicle and attempt to drive away.  As the vehicle was attempting to leave it struck a bush and then a large air conditioning unit.  Police then contacted the driver, identified as Carter, and were able to get him to shut off the vehicle.

While speaking to Carter, police smelled a strong odor of alcohol coming from the vehicle and administered standard field sobriety tests. Carter was taken into custody after the tests were completed.

He was transported to the Harrington Police Department for processing.  He was charged with driving under the influence of alcohol and released pending a future court appearance.
