ALPENA - A Woonsocket man was arrested for allegedly taking more than $1,400 from a video lottery machine.

Joshua Smith, 41, was arrested and charged with grand theft on Nov. 30 after breaking into a video lottery machine at the Red Hog in Alpena and taking $1,424, court documents state.

Smith also allegedly made aggressive movements and statements toward law enforcement officers during his arrest.

A preliminary breath test revealed Smith's blood-alcohol content to be 0.209. For comparison, the legal limit to drive in South Dakota is 0.08.

Smith was charged with grand theft valued between $1,000 and $2,500, a class 6 felony punishable upon conviction by up to two years in prison and a $4,000 fine.
