Mister Booze and Drive Had Heat
LUSBY, MD. Police report that one DUI driver was loaded in more ways than one.
On 8/17/14 at 3:05 am, Trooper First Class Wiesemann stopped a vehicle on HG Trueman Rd. near Town Square Dr. in Lusby for traffic violations. Charles W. Mister, 25, of Lusby, was speaking with slurred speech and the odor of alcohol was emitting from inside the vehicle and on his breath. He was arrested for DUI.
Police report that a search incident to the arrest revealed a loaded magazine in the truck’s cup holder and an unloaded handgun with the slide forward in the glove compartment. Maryland law requires that the ammunition be carried separately in a vehicle.
Mister’s mother contacted THE CHESAPEAKE TODAY to say that her son had been out celebrating with his buddies after learning that his sister had a baby and had recently returned from duty overseas in the armed forces.
The charges include driving on the wrong side of the road and failing to stop for a stoplight.
He was additionally charged with possession of a handgun. He was incarcerated at the Calvert County Detention Center.
Impaired driving continues to cause deaths on a massive scale in the United States. The Veterans Administration and the DoD offer programs for alcoholism and PTSD which are free as opposed to visiting bars.
