Officers claim to have found an open bottle of alcohol in the truck; they also say that Hoard’s log books were off, and that he shouldn’t have been driving. A breath test conducted in the field reportedly showed a blood alcohol level of .158. Hoard was arrested and booked on bail of $1,000. The roadway wasn’t cleared until nearly 11 pm.
