Leonard Partridge, 39, was on Chamberlain Street when Cpl. Nelson Ferro stopped him at 1:17 a.m. Partridge, who was out on bail and driving with a suspended license, failed a field sobriety test, Lord said.

Partridge’s blood alcohol level was tested using an Intoxilyzer and the results exceeded the state’s legal limit of 0.08. β€œHe was well over the limit,” Lord said.

Partridge was arrested and charged with operating under the influence and violating his bail conditions. He also was given a ticket for operating after suspension, Lord said. He was taken to the Penobscot County Jail and will remain there until at least Monday, a jail official said. (Nok-Noi Ricker, BDN) printed on January 22, 2017
