BANGOR, Maine — Someone called police Tuesday morning after seeing a man who appeared to be highly intoxicated get behind the wheel of his car with his young child in tow, Bangor police Sgt. Paul Edwards said Wednesday.
Danny Hickman, 27, of Old Town was stopped on Stillwater Avenue around 11:30 a.m. and was given a field sobriety test.
Based on the results of the test, he was placed under arrest for operating under the influence, Edwards said.
Hickman was given an Intoxilyzer test and he had no alcohol in his blood system, the sergeant said.
Edwards said police brought in a drug recognition expert, who determined that Hickman was under the influence of drugs.
In addition to the OUI charge, Hickman was charged with operating with a suspended driver’s license and violating his probation. He also had two outstanding warrants for his arrest. He was taken to Penobscot County Jail and remained there Wednesday, Edwards said.
The 3-year-old child with him was picked up by the mother, the sergeant said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN)
