HOWARD WELCH 

MONT VERNON – A local man was arrested for DWI Saturday after police found him passed out behind the wheel of his van.

Howard Welch, 56, of 73 Beech Hill Road, Mont Vernon, was sitting in his parked Dodge van on Beech Hill Road when police say they came upon him just after 7 p.m. while on patrol.

The officer said Welch was slumped over the wheel, passed out, and the officer was unable to wake him after several attempts.

Welch was charged with DWI, aggravated DWI for showing a high alcohol concentration after submitting to testing, DWI – third offense for having two prior convictions within 10 years, and having an open container of alcohol.

Welch was released on $1,200 personal recognizance bail and is scheduled to appear in 9th Circuit Court, Milford District Division, on April 22.
