A Carroll man charged with public intoxication blew nearly five times the legal limit at the time of his arrest. According to Carroll County District Court records, 41-year-old Jesse William Spindler was taken into custody by the Carroll County Sheriff’s Office at approximately 12:03 a.m. this (Wednesday) morning. Authorities say Spindler was walking southbound in the 300 block of North Main Street and showed signs of intoxication. When law enforcement made contact, they noticed a strong odor of alcohol coming from his person and a noticeable lack of balance. Spindler submitted to a preliminary breath test, which indicated his blood alcohol content was .397 percent. Spindler was transported to St. Anthony Regional Hospital and later booked into the Carroll County jail. He was released from custody on his own recognizance Wednesday after appearing before a magistrate.
