Iowa City police say man showed up drunk for jail

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) - Authorities say an Iowa City man may not
have picked the best time to get loaded when he showed up drunk to
serve a public intoxication sentence.
Now he faces another charge.
Police say the 19-year-old showed up at the Johnson County Jail
on Tuesday to serve his three-day sentence and officials smelled
alcohol on his breath.
Court records say tests showed the man had a blood-alcohol
content of 0.101 percent when he arrived at the jail.
A court date on the new charge hasn't been set.
Court records say the man pleaded guilty to public intoxication
in May 2008 and was convicted of public intoxication second-offense
last December.
