WAGNER - A Wagner man was arrested and charged with DUI, which would be his fifth drunken driving offense, if convicted.

Robert Eddy, 56, was arrested on Nov. 20 outside his home in Wagner by a Wagner police officer. Before pulling Eddy over, the officer discovered Eddy's license was revoked. After Eddy stopped at his Wagner home, the officer performed a field-sobriety test and administered a preliminary breath test, which allegedly revealed a blood-alcohol content of 0.11 percent. The legal limit to drive in South Dakota is 0.08 percent.

Eddy was charged with fifth-offense DUI, a class 4 felony punishable upon conviction by up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine; and driving with a revoked license, a class 1 misdemeanor punishable upon conviction by up to one year in jail and a $2,000 fine.
