KINGMAN, AZ (FOX5) -
A man in northwest Arizona was charged with super extreme DUI, accused of driving while having a blood alcohol concentration nearly three times the legal limit.
According to the Mohave County Sheriff's Office, Stephen Paige Greene, 63, of Kingman, was also charged with felony unlawful flight from a law enforcement vehicle, driving under the influence and extreme DUI.
The sheriff's office said deputies were called on reports of a possible impaired driver Thursday evening. Deputies spotted the reported vehicle, a white sport-utility vehicle, and attempted to pull it over, the sheriff's office said.
The vehicle, though, kept driving without stopping. Deputies were able to apprehend the driver, Greene, after he stopped.
According to the sheriff's office, Greene told deputies he had six beers but was not drunk. Greene was taken to Mohave County Jail, where a blood alcohol concentration test resulted in a 0.219 percent reading.
Authorities also believed Greene may have hit a pole in a parking lot before deputies tried to stop him.
