Local authorities were making numerous traffic stops Friday in the county, with a traffic stop by the Grantsville Police Department Thursday night resulting in a DUI arrest.

Grantsville Sgt. J. R. Garrett arrested Danny C. Marks, 51, of Bull River Road, and charged him with DUI after failing a field sobriety test and registering .217 blood alcohol on a Preliminary Breath Test.

Officer Garrett, according to the complaint, stopped the vehicle after it was weaving to the center line.

Marks told the officer he had not been drinking, with the officer stating he had an open can of beer on the floor board. Garrett discovered a beer cooler in the back of the vehicle with unopened beer, in addition to a shotgun and a rifle.

Marks refused to take a chemical test for blood alcohol, said officer Garrett, and was informed that his "lack of cooperation was paramount to a refusal," and he was transported to Central Regional Jail.
