BRIDGEWATER - A Bridgewater man was arrested for his fourth driving under the influence offense after leaving the scene of an early morning crash Jan. 26.

A person reported a vehicle in a ditch on 254th Street in McCook County, and officers traced the ownership to Benjamin Greenlee, Jr., whom they approached at his home in Bridgewater.

According to court documents, Greenlee smelled of alcohol and was unsteady on his feet.

Greenlee allegedly told officers he crashed his pickup earlier in the afternoon, and when asked how much he had to drink he said "enough."

Greenlee refused sobriety tests, and was arrested for fourth-offense DUI, a Class 5 felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
