A man with a .20 blood alcohol content was arrested early Monday outside of a motel after crashing his vehicle in the parking lot.
Police were dispatched just after midnight to the private property accident at Motel 6 on Skyline Drive, and found the driver of a Dodge pickup, identified as Roger Dale Owens, 60, of Conway, still sitting in the driver's seat. The keys to the truck were located in the passenger side floorboard.
The man first told police "Jackson Browne" was driving the vehicle at the time of the incident but ran away, then admitted responsibility when asked why he was in the driver's seat.
The motel manager witnessed the accident and told police he never saw another man in the vehicle, but did see Owens exit the vehicle from the driver's seat following the accident.
Owens reportedly told police "I'm guilty," before asking if the officer "could just let this go."
After failing three field sobriety tests, Owens was taken into custody for DWI and careless and prohibited driving.
During an inventory of the truck, police discovered a red cooler full of ice, several Busch Light beers in the truck bed and a 30-pack of Busch Light in the back seat.
Owens' vehicle was towed from the scene and officers confiscated his driver's license before he was transported to Faulkner County jail.
