Jefferson County sheriff’s deputies stopped a man for allegedly operating a vehicle with nonfunctional brake lamps and discovered his blood alcohol content was nearly three times the state’s legal limit.

Tyler J. Marnell, 33, of 714 Morrison St., said he was driving home from a bar before dawn Saturday when he was stopped, deputies said.

According to deputies, Mr. Marnell failed a field sobriety test and upon being transported to the Metro-Jefferson Public Safety Building for a breath analysis test, his BAC was determined to be 0.23 percent.

Under state law, a BAC of 0.08 percent or higher constitutes proof of intoxication. Aggravated DWI is charged when the BAC is 0.18 or higher.

At 3:16 a.m., he was charged with aggravated DWI, as well as the inadequate brake lamp infraction, and issued appearance tickets to City Court.
