26-year-old David Laszlo Beranek Jr. was going 93 mph in a 65-mph zone on Dover Road on December 13th.

He was read implied consent and agreed to provide breath samples, which resulted in 0.170% BAC and 0.180% BAC. Beranek Jr. was taken into custody for driving under the influence, open container violation, speeding, reckless driving, and possessing a handgun while under the influence.
