KINGMAN, AZ (CBS5) -

A Fort Mohave man was arrested on suspicion of super extreme driving under the influence after he was found sitting in his car in a resident's front yard early Tuesday morning.

Richard Lewis Teeples, 22, had a blood alcohol content level of 0.231 percent, nearly three times the legal limit of 0.08 percent in Arizona, said Trish Carter of the Mohave County Sheriff's Office.

Deputies found Teeples in his car just after midnight and that there was a strong odor of alcohol inside the vehicle, Carter said.

Teeples told deputies he had been drinking earlier and that he lost control of his car and crashed into the front yard, Carter said.

But further investigation revealed Teeples' car struck two parked vehicles before ending up in the front yard, Carter said.

Teeples was given field sobriety tests and taken to the Fort Mohave Tribal Police Department before being booked into the Mohave County District II Substation on charges of DUI, DUI with a blood alcohol concentration over 0.08 percent, extreme DUI with a blood alcohol concentration over 0.15 percent and less than 20 percent, and super extreme DUI with a blood alcohol concentration over 0.20 percent, Carter, said.

She said charges related to the property damage were pending.
