SALISBURY, Md.- The Wicomico County Sheriff's Office has arrested a Princess Anne man on his seventh drunken driving offense.

The Sheriff's Office said that on Sunday evening, a deputy responded to the parking lot of a beer store located on the 1300 block of South Salisbury Boulevard for the report of a man slumped over the steering wheel of a car. The deputy arrived and came into contact with Anthony Eugene Ward, 45, of Princess Anne, who reportedly was found sitting behind the wheel with his seatbelt fastened. Police said the deputy detected a strong odor of an alcoholic beverage emanating from Ward and requested that he get out of his vehicle. Investigators said that upon doing so, Ward lost his balance and fell toward the deputy who had to catch him to avoid him falling onto the pavement. Ward declined to perform any sobriety testing requested by the deputy, authorities said. 

The deputy also discovered that Ward’s privilege to drive was both suspended and revoked, according to the Sheriff's Office. Ward’s vehicle was then towed from the scene.

Police said the deputy also found out that Ward has five convictions from previous DUI related driving offenses from 1990, 1996, 1997, 2003 and 2008, along with an arrest from November 2013 that is still awaiting adjudication.

Ward was taken into custody and charged with DUI, driving while revoked and driving while suspended. He was ordered held in the Wicomico County Detention Center in lieu of $7,500 bond.
