Police arrested a driver who they said had gone the wrong way on one-way Salisbury Street late Wednesday morning and who showed a blood alcohol level of 0.29 – more than three times the legal limit – when he was stopped.
Arrest records showed that police said they found an open alcohol container in the car when they stopped Charles Leroy Bogan III, 51, on West Lane Street. They also said Bogan admitted he had been drinking and told an officer, “I’m messed up.”
Bogan’s driver’s license, which police seized when they arrested him, listed his address as 2680 Stokes Circle in Kinston, but he was booked into the Wake County Detention Center with an address of 113 Hawthorne Drive in Raleigh.
There were no accidents reported in the incident.

A traffic citation issued to Bogan said he also had not obeyed instruction on West Lane Street for where cars should drive.
Bogan was held in lieu of $3,000 bail.
