A teenager arrested for driving while impaired by Selma Police reportedly told arresting officers he had consumed only one beer.
Around 2:00am last Saturday, Oct. 5th, an officer was on patrol on S. Pollock Street (US 301 South) when he noticed a Ford truck weaving in the travel lanes and traveling at 20 miles per hour, well below the posted speed limit.
The officer stopped the vehicle on W. Noble Street and asked the driver for his license. The driver, 18 year-old Edgar Agsaca of S. 5th Street, Smithfield reportedly told the officer he didn’t have a license. Police said the man had red, glassy eyes and an odor of alcohol on his breath. Agsaca told the officer he had drank only one beer.
Agsaca was unable to perform any field sobriety tests due to his lack of balance, police said.
He was transported to the Selma Police Department where he registered 0.18 on the Breathalyzer, more than double the legal limit of 0.08.
Agsaca was taken to the Johnston County Jail and charged with driving while impaired and driving while consuming under age 21. He was released on a $2,000 bond pending an Oct. 24th court appearance.
