Police located the man in the parking lot, keys in hand and behind the steering wheel, and initiated a traffic stop. A roadside breath test was administered and registered a fail.

The man received a 30-day vehicle impound and 90-day driving prohibition related to impaired care and control of a motor vehicle.

A parked vehicle had its window smashed out Friday afternoon.
