SWEETWATER-A Niota area man with a history of driving offenses was arrested again Jan. 3 after he was spotted having trouble driving on Highway 11.

Sweetwater Police Officer Tommy Jones said it was just before 10 p.m. when he went to assist Officer Suzanne Ward with a possible drunk driver.

When he arrived he saw a man later identified as Albert Lee McCowan, 51, County Road 275, Niota, nearly fall on Ward as he got out of the car.

Jones said both officers tried to talk to McCowan, but he staggered around, even when he was bracing himself on his car and eventually had to be put in a patrol car for his own safety.
