A Finksburg man accused of driving 70 mph in a 55-mph zone and weaving from lane to lane Thursday morning was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated by state police.

Tfc. Douglas W. Reitz said he was driving on Route 140 near Suffolk Road at 1:20 a.m. and saw a car ahead of him drifting from side to side. The trooper wrote in charging documents that he increased his speed to pace the automobile and registered its speed at 70 mph.

After stopping the car at Route 140 and Sandymount Road, the trooper said the driver failed several sobriety field tests. The driver refused to take a chemical sobriety test at the Westminster barracks, court papers indicated.

He was held on $10,000 bond after a hearing before a court commissioner.
