Police Say Man Involved in Minor Crash Had Blood Alcohol Level Three Times The Legal Limit

WILLIMANTIC, Conn. (WTNH) – A minor accident got a suspected drunk driver off the road before something much worse could happen.  Friday afternoon, Willimantic Police officers arrested Raul Linares for DUI.  He’d gotten into a minor crash on Main Street.  No one was hurt in the accident.  While Linares was being processed at Willimantic Police headquarters, he was given a breathalyzer test.  Police say Linares’ breath alcohol content was three times the legal limit.  He was processed and is due in court later this month.
