GREAT BARRINGTON -- A Lee man is being held without bail in connection with his sixth drunken driving charge.

Nathaniel Greene, 59, of Ferncliff Drive in Lee, was arrested in June by state troopers who observed what they believed to be an accident in front of the Subway sandwich shop.

Greene, who had walked away from the damaged vehicle, returned a short time later and denied it was his car, police said. He later admitted he was the driver and the owner.

After discovering alcoholic beverage containers in the car, police said, they subjected Greene to a field sobriety test, which he failed.

Police also determined that his driver's license had been revoked in 2007 and that he had been charged with OUI in 1985, 1986, 1987, 1989 and 2003.

He pleaded not guilty in Berkshire Superior Court last month on one count each of driving after the revocation of his license and driving while under the influence of alcohol.

He was ordered held without bail. A trial date has not been set.
