A Watertown man was arrested early Saturday on a charge of failure to have an ignition interlock device in a rented or loaned vehicle he was driving.

Watertown police additionally charged David E. Thompson Jr., 25, of 435 S. Hycliff Drive, Apt. 622-A, with second-degree aggravated unlicensed operation of a motor vehicle, failure to stop at a stop sign, failure to signal a turn, speeding and two counts of running a red light at 4:55 a.m. Saturday at 1809 State St. He was arraigned before Watertown City Judge Eugene R. Renzi, sent to the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building and later released on $500 bail.

Use of ignition interlock devices typically is required of people convicted of driving while intoxicated.

Mr. Thompson in June was charged with DWI by Watertown police, but a disposition of the case was unavailable Saturday.
