12:37 pm

A man was pulled over in a routine traffic stop for not wearing a seat belt and was arrested for a drunken driving charge after police suspected that the man had been drinking.

The incident occurred last week around 8 a.m. in Seattle near the Yesler exit. The 31-year-old man was arrested for suspicion of driving under the influence and was taken to King County jail.

According to police, the man has a history of alcohol-related offenses which could possibly upgrade this charge to a felony DUI charge under the Washington state law. The incident is currently under investigation.
