Calvert man flags down deputy, gets charged with DUI
Stephen D. Banik couldn't get his car started, so he did what a lot of people might do: He flagged down a sherrif's deputy for help.
Banik got a lot more than a jump start, Calvert County sheriff's deputies said.
The sheriff's office tells it like this in a news release:
Deputy Aundrea Lawton responded to a call reporting a suspicious person in the area of Carson Drive in Huntingtown at 4:15 a.m. on Jan. 15. As she got there, she was flagged down by man standing near a white Ford Explorer. Lawton detected a "strong odor of alcohol" on the man, who said he was having trouble starting the vehicle, authorities said.
After an investigation, Lawton arrested Banik, 24, of Sunderland, charging him with possession of marijuana and Ambien, as well as driving under the influence of alcohol.
