A Sedalia man was arrested on a charge of driving while intoxicated Tuesday evening after an officer saw him driving more than 20 miles over the speed limit.
According to a Sedalia Police Department report, at 8:40 p.m., as an officer was southbound on Limit Avenue, he clocked a northbound vehicle driving 56 miles per hour in a 35 mph zone. The officer was able to turn around and catch up to the vehicle at the Broadway Boulevard intersection. The vehicle then turned west and pulled into a parking lot near the Sunset Avenue intersection.

After further investigation and field sobriety tests were taken, the suspect was taken into custody. A breath test was administered and the suspect was taken to the Pettis County Jail.
