Drunk driver arrested after striking mailbox

A drunk driver was arrested on multiple counts after he struck a mailbox in his neighborhood and fled Thursday night around 10:10.

The Logan County Sheriff's Office reports that Larry Powers (pictured), 39, of 7180 Hardin Drive, Russells Point, struck a mailbox in Five Parks.

About 45 minutes later, deputies found Powers. He was driving a white hearse with its headlights off.

Authorities smelled alcohol on Powers.

After he refused a field sobriety test, he was transported to the Logan County Jail.

His blood alcohol level was .241, more than three times the legal limit.

Powers was charged with OVI, driving under suspension, failure to control, seat belt, and no headlights.

He has four prior OVI convictions.
