NORTH ADAMS — A Cheshire man agreed Tuesday to be held without bail for 120 days, during a pretrial hearing in Northern Berkshire District Court on a fifth OUI charge.
Wayne Field, 59, was stopped by Cheshire Police near a Route 8 liquor store May 17 and was found to have a blood alcohol level of 0.29 percent, more than three times the legal limit to drive, according to a report filed by Cheshire Police Officer Dylan Vandoloski.
Police followed up on a report of an erratic driver and tracked down Field, who allegedly failed to signal as he turned in to the Cheshire Liquor Center and stumbled toward the store.
He was arraigned last week and held on $5,000 cash bail until the dangerousness hearing Tuesday.
Field agreed with the Berkshire District Attorney's Office that he would be found dangerous and held without the right to bail for 120 days.
Field, of West Mountain Road, is next scheduled to appear in court June 27 for a pretrial hearing. He has pleaded not guilty to single counts of operating under the influence, fifth offense, failure to signal and disorderly conduct.
