Police say a man arrested in Southeast Austin on suspicion of drunk driving had a blood alcohol content five times the legal limit.

According to the arrest affidavit, 50-yar-old Patrick Allen Moore is charged with driving while intoxicated, a third degree felony.

It happened on Feb. 6 in the 2700 block of Montopolis Road, just north of the East Oltorf Street intersection.

Police say Moore hit another car and then ran into a concrete median. Officers responded to the scene after his car came to a stop and when they tried to speak with him he was unresponsive.

While searching his car, three empty liquor bottles were found, court documents say.

After a blood sample was it showed that Moore's blood alcohol level was .420, which is five times over the legal limit, police say.

Moore has previously been arrested for two other DWIs, which enhanced the current charge.
