PATRICK E. JONES Reporting: A man who police say was driving while intoxicated has been arrested and charged.
Felicito Sho, 40, was booked on a charge of driving a motor vehicle with alcohol concentration above the prescribed limit, following an incident late on Tuesday night.
Police say that just before 9 o’clock on Tuesday night they received reports of a tow head truck heading towards Belize City that was swerving across the Phillip Goldson Highway.
The swerving truck, according to the reports, nearly ran a passenger bus off the road.
Police say that they then set up a vehicle checkpoint at the Burrel Boom junction, and sure enough around 9:30 pm, the tow head, hauling a trailer pulled up.
Police say that when they checked, the driver, Felicito Sho, appeared to be under the influence of alcohol.
Sho and his town head truck were escorted to the Ladyville police station.
Sho was subsequently arrested and charged.
