Man arrested for driving backhoe drunk

South Brunswick, NJ (AP) -

A New Jersey man who police say was driving drunk while behind the wheel of a backhoe is facing charges.

Fifty-six-year-old William Campbell was charged Tuesday with driving while intoxicated, careless driving and failing to maintain a lane among other offenses.

Police say a South Brunswick officer stopped Campbell Monday after observing him "drinking beer and swerving all over the road."

The officer reportedly smelled alcohol on Campbell's breath and found bottles of Jack Daniels and vodka in the backhoe.

Police say Campbell failed a field sobriety test and admitted to the officer that he didn't have a valid license.

Campbell has seven prior DWI convictions. It's unclear if he has an attorney who can comment on the charges.
