A man faces his third drunk driving charge after Clayton Police said he drove over a curb for about 50 feet and couldn’t stay in a single lane on Forsyth Boulevard Jan. 12.
Gregory J. Welch, of the 8000 block of Maryland Avenue in Clayton, was charged Jan. 13 with driving while intoxicated as a persistent offender.
Clayton Police said Welch was weaving as he drove near Forsyth and Kingsbury boulevards Jan. 12. When officers pulled him over, they said he appeared to be drunk. Welch took a breathalyzer test, which showed his blood-alcohol content to be .146 percent, according to the police report.
Welch has two previous DWI convictions, one in St. Louis County in 1999 and second in St. Charles County in 1995. He posted 10 percent of a $15,000 bond and was released.
