UPDATED: Slater man charged with DWI after Nov. 1 arrest

Tuesday, November 4, 2008

A 21 year-old Slater man was arrested Saturday evening, Nov. 1, for driving while intoxicated, after an argument with his girlfriend, according to a report from the Saline County Sheriff's Department.

Patrick G. Cunningham was charged with class B misdemeanor driving while intoxicated, according to unofficial online court records. He posted a $1,500 personal recognizance bond.

Cunningham's vehicle allegedly left ruts in the front yard of a Malta Bend residence as he left the area following the argument, according to deputies.

The owner of the residence then called the Sheriff's department to file a report of the incident.

After a short chase south on U.S. Highway 65, deputies stopped the car in Marshall and took Cunningham into custody, according to the report.

Field sobriety tests indicated he had a blood alcohol level nearly twice the legal limit, according to the report.

If he's still in custody, there must have been a warrant issued, thus the filing of formal charges. Who is he?
