Man arrested when he can’t find his way home

Nevada AppealNews Service

A 23-year-old Gardnerville man sentenced to probation for driving his car at two salesmen through a Carson City auto showroom last year was arrested Saturday when he was so drunk he couldn’t find his way home.

Deputies were called at 2:35 a.m. after residents complained about Travis Williams trying to enter a home in the 700 block of Bluerock because he thought he lived there.

His blood-alcohol content measured .218, nearly three times the legal limit of .08 for driving in Nevada.

Williams told deputies he was walking home from a bar and thought he was at his residence.

He was sentenced to five years probation in Carson City last year for two charges of assault with a deadly weapon and malicious destruction of property.

Williams has been diagnosed with a bipolar disorder with psychosis, and ordered to take his medication to keep him out of prison.

He was jailed Saturday on probation violation for drinking alcohol.
