A Macclenny man facing a DUI in Jacksonville stemming from an incident in August during which he ran over and killed another man was re-arrested for the same offense in Baker County early on November 25.
Brian Patterson, 32, refused to submit to a breathalyzer test at county jail after he was arrested in downtown Macclenny, and he earlier failed routine field sobriety testing, said Deputy Daryl Mobley.
The officer said he observed Mr. Patterson’s speeding 1996 Chevrolet pickup abruptly stop at the intersection of US 90 and Lowder St. about 2:45 am. Deputy Mobley said he initiated a traffic stop after observing the pickup twice veer into the shoulder lane as it traveled east on US 90.
Two beers, one of them unopened, were inside the vehicle.
