WAGNER - A Wagner man was charged with what was at least his sixth DUI after he was found in a vehicle sitting in the ditch.

Alfred Dragg, 31, was charged with sixth-or-subsequent DUI on June 5 after law enforcement found him allegedly sleeping in the driver's seat of a running pickup that was sitting in the north ditch of Highway 46 about 5 miles west of Wagner, court documents state.

Dragg declined to perform multiple field-sobriety tests, and a preliminary breath test reported a blood-alcohol content of 0.169 percent. The legal limit to drive in South Dakota is 0.08 percent.

Sixth-or-subsequent DUI is a class 4 felony, punishable upon conviction by up to 10 years in prison and a $20,000 fine. Dragg is also charged with driving with a revoked license, a class 1 misdemeanor, punishable upon conviction by up to one year in jail and a $2,000 fine.
