Elderly man charged with DUI


    A 71-year-old El Socorro man will appear in court on Monday charged with driving under the influence.

    On Saturday, Fraud Squad detectives were driving along the Northbound Lane of the Uriah Butler Highway near the Caroni Flyover, when they saw a silver Toyota Rav 4 being driven erratically.

    According to the officers, the driver almost hit the police vehicle, failed to stop, and continued to swerve wildly across all lanes.

    They eventually got him to pull onto the shoulder and a breathalyzer showed a breath-alcohol concentration of 63 micrograms, which is 28 micrograms over the legal limit.
