Exira Man Arrested And Charged With Driving While Intoxicated, 2nd Offense

An Exira man was arrested Thursday morning after being suspected of driving while intoxicated. At approximately 1:30 a.m., an Audubon County Sheriff’s Office deputy pulled over 55-year-old Fred James Muhr near the intersection of Littlefield Dr. and Pheasant Ave. about 2.5 miles east of Exira. The deputy determined Muhr was under the influence, and he was subsequently arrested on charges of operating while intoxicated–second offense, an aggravated misdemeanor. Muhr posted a $2,000 bond and was released from the Audubon County jail. He is scheduled to appear before the Magistrate on Monday, July 20.
