Looks like someone had a sweet tooth!
Merrill K. Moses of Fairbanks, AK was arraigned for his DUI arrest on a motorized shopping cart this past week. He was also charged with shoplifting, as he stole cookies and cake mix from a grocery store last Wednesday night.
Police stopped Moses on a motorized shopping cart after leaving a nearby grocery store without paying for his items last Wednesday night. When they suspected him to be under the influence, he refused a field sobriety test. However, he did submit to a preliminary BAC test where his blood content was measured to be almost four times the legal limit.
This isn’t the first time Moses was seen drunk on his shopping cart. Grocery store employees state that he has been a problem for the establishment, as he is often seen operating his cart under the influence at the store.
Moses does have a criminal past, as he was previously arrested for drinking in public and an open container violation.
Many people who are arrested multiple times for alcohol violations and DUI often are dealing with issues of alcohol abuse. However, by working with an attorney, these people can often avoid jail by seeking treatment for their addiction problems.
