Michael B. Crall, 37, of Orient, was charged with second-offense operating while intoxicated 11:17 p.m. Friday in Orient.

According to an Adair County Sheriff’s report, on March 5, a deputy was called to an accident on the 3200 block of 270th Street in Orient where he saw a silver Chevrolet that had hit a bridge and appeared to have disabling damage. The driver, Crall, was resting against the side of the bridge and he appeared to be intoxicated with bloodshot, watery eyes, unsteady gait and smelling of alcohol. The deputy found several open containers inside the vehicle and Crall said he had drank approximately 15 beers before driving. Crall failed a field sobriety test and his blood-alcohol was .188.

The charge Crall received stemmed from that accident and no other bond information was available.
