A 47-year-old Bryan man previously convicted of drunken driving was arrested Saturday after police said he made an illegal turn.

Officers noticed a pickup near Texas 6 and Tabor Road without its headlights on around 2:23 a.m., according to the arrest report. As the officers followed the vehicle to make a traffic stop, the truck turned north onto the southbound Texas 6 frontage road, stopping at a gas station in the 3200 block of Wilkes Street, police said.

According to the report, the man seemed disoriented, was unaware that his headlights were off, smelled of alcohol and failed a sobriety test.

He was charged with driving while intoxicated with a previous conviction -- in 1993 -- which is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail and a maximum fine of $4,000.

The man was released from the Brazos County Jail on Saturday afternoon after posting $4,000 bail.
