BARTLESVILLE, Oklahoma -- A 41-year-old Bartlesville man being arraigned in Washington County District Court Monday for DUI, leaving the scene of an accident, driving under suspension and assault on a police officer was re-arrested for reportedly being drunk after he fell down before the judge.
A short time later, Mark Watson failed a breathalyzer test administered by sheriff's deputies.
The initial charges stemmed from Watson's arrest early Monday morning after he had reportedly been involved in a hit and run crash in Bartlesville.
Bartlesville Police investigating the 2:28 a.m. crash found Watson's vehicle and questioned him.
In the probable cause affidavit filed with the court, Watson told officers, "I'm ------- drunk, I was driving but I did not run the stop sign. That ----- hit me."
The affidavit goes on to say Watson refused to take a blood or breath test, telling the officers, "I ain't taking no ------- tests. I'm ------- drunk. I'm blind anyways and I can't drive."
Police say he also kicked an officer during the arrest.
The Washington County D.A.'s office is expected to file additional charges following Monday's court appearance.
