A 1:15 p.m. Monday arraignment has been scheduled for William Creller, 53, Neosho, charged with felony driving while intoxicated as a prior offender.

The Joplin Police stopped Creller at 25th and Main June 9.

I asked him to exit the vehicle and could smell the overwhelming odor of intoxicants coming from his breath. He was very uneasy on his feet and was staggering."

After giving Creller field sobriety tests, Jones placed him under arrest.

Creller consented to a breath test, which showed his blood alcohol content at 0.219, according to the statement.
