Aggravated DUI

Police arrested Corey Clark, 30, of Butte Monday night after she allegedly blew three times over the legal limit on a breath test.

Police say they spotted the 30-year-old sitting in a vehicle that was stopped in the driving lane near Cobban Street and Maryland Avenue.

She was taken to the Butte detention center, where she allegedly failed a field sobriety test and the Breathalyzer.

Clark has been cited with an aggravated DUI, a misdemeanor.

Disorderly conduct

Police said they arrested Sheldon Brien, 32, of Butte Monday evening after they discovered the 32-year-old asleep on the sidewalk near Dakota and Park streets, allegedly under the influence of alcohol.

When police attempted to rouse him, they said, he allegedly yelled and screamed at them.

Brien was subsequently arrested for disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor.

Habitual offender

Police responded Monday afternoon to the 400 block of West Mercury Street in response to a report of a man looking inside parked vehicles.

When police arrived they saw two cars, both of which had license plates that were registered to different vehicles.

At the scene police spoke with Gaven Harrison, 27, of Butte, who they said claimed ownership of the cars and admitting to putting the fictitious plates on the vehicles. The cars, police said, were not stolen vehicles, but one of the plates had been reported stolen.

Police soon learned Harrison had warrants out for his arrest. He was taken to the Butte detention center, where he was charged with a variety of driving-related offenses, including misdemeanors for displaying the wrong plates, driving without a driver’s license and for being a habitual traffic offender. He was also cited with possession of stolen property.

Accident results in arrest

Police responded Monday afternoon to the corner of Utah and Second streets in response to a two-vehicle accident.

At the scene they arrested one of the drivers, Joseph Drew, 45, of Butte who had warrants out for his arrest from Montana Highway Patrol.

In addition to the two warrants, Drew was charged with several driving-related offences, all of them misdemeanors. Offenses included driving without a license, being a habitual traffic offender and following a vehicle too closely.

No one was injured during the accident, police said.
