Man Charged with Driving Drunk, Possessing Meth

Authorities arrested a man following a traffic stop on Saturday night after they say he was driving drunk and had meth in his car.

Initially, authorities say they stopped the vehicle Dennis Lackey was driving because he was allegedly driving outside of his lane and when a Trooper ran his plates, it came back as being suspended prior under Lackey's name.

During the traffic stop, authorities say they could smell the odor of alcohol on Lackey's breath. At first, Lackey allegedly told authorities he had two beers at a restaurant. However, once outside his vehicle for a field sobriety test, Lackey allegedly admitted to having three shots of tequila as well.

Authorities say Lackey failed the field sobriety test so a breathalyzer was administered. Authorities say Lackey blew a .14.

After Lackey was placed into custody, the Trooper performing the traffic stop said a corner cut baggie was then found on the floorboard in between the driver seat and door. The substance inside the bag later tested positive for meth. At the time, Lackey allegedly told authorities the bag wasn't his.

Once at the jail, authorities say Lackey completed a certified breath test with a result of 0.115. Lackey was then charged with operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and possession of meth.
