A Maryland man was arrested in Accomack County last Sunday and charged with felony DUI and two counts of child endangerment after a state trooper saw him drinking a beer while driving.
Erito Galvez-Roblero, 32, of Crisfield Highway in Westover, Md., was also charged with driving without a license, a misdemeanor, according to records filed in Accomack General District Court.
Trooper L.W. Milyko wrote in the file that he was driving in his marked patrol car. “I was passing a pick-up truck and while alongside, I observed the driver take a drink of a Coors Light can. I stopped the vehicle and spoke to the driver who smelled strongly of an alcoholic beverage. His speech was slurred and eyes blood-shot. He told me he had six beers and he last took a sip when I saw him. There was an eight-year-old boy and a one-year-old girl” in the truck Galvez-Roblero was driving.
A Breathalyzer test showed him with .21 grams per 210 liters of breath. The legal limit is .08.
Galvez-Roblero is being held without bond.
In another case, Lawrence O. Matthews, 54, of Market St. in Pocomoke City, Md., was charged with unauthorized use of a vehicle in connection with a Sept. 12 incident.
Deputy M.R. McCready of the Accomack County Sheriff’s Office investigated. Matthews is being held without bond.
