A Redmond man was arrested for driving under the influence Sept. 3.

Police were called to the 700 block of Rainier Avenue at about 9 p.m. to find a car driving on a bare rim, throwing sparks and tearing up the road surface.

When police approached the vehicle the driver, a 31-year-old man, was sweating profusely despite the driver's window being down and the temperature being about 60 degrees. The officer also noticed a thick white substance all over the dashboard, but the man claimed it was not vomit.

The man's wheel, mirror and corner panel were damaged, as if from a car accident. The man claimed someone had attacked his car, and that punches and kicks had caused the damage.

The man's breath sample read a 0.128 blood alcohol content. While being arrested for DUI, the man asked the officer for legal advice.
