DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — A man who has been convicted of drunk driving before was picked up on Sunday for the same offense.

Troy Evans, 48, was arrested on charges of OVI.

The call originated at the intersection of Kammer Avenue and Westwood Avenue after midnight when someone reported Evans’ pick-up was in the middle of the street facing the wrong way. The caller then reported Evans took off and was driving erratically.

When police arrived in the area, they said they spotted Evans swerving south on James H. McGee Boulevard.

Officers initiated a traffic stop where Evans eventually pulled over on McCall Street.

When police pulled him over, they said they found two opened pint sized bottles of red Irish rose wine in the vehicle.

Officers said Evans was unsteady and his eyes were watery. They also smelled a strong odor of alcohol coming from him.

Evans agreed to take a field sobriety test, which officers reported he failed. Evans was also administered a breathalyzer and blew a 0.207, according to the police report.

Police reviewed Evans’ history which showed he had been convicted of three OVI’s in the last six years and five OVI’s in the last 20 years.

Evans was booked into the Montgomery County Jail. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
