Phoenix Man arrested for Seventh DUI

Court documents show that at about 9 p.m., a police officer saw a car with no headlights travelling on Greenway Parkway and Cave Creek Road.

According to court records, a police officer pulled over Michael James Hoover, 41, after he saw him driving his vehicle at about 60 mph in a 45 mph zone. The officer also saw that Hoover’s vehicle was out of control; he was facing difficulty staying in his lane and hit a curb.

When Hoover stopped on the order of the officer, the officer went up to his window. Hoover tossed his keys at him and said he was going home because it was his birthday. Then he told the officer that he had consumed alcohol with his friends because it was his birthday and his driver’s license was suspended that’s why he didn’t have a license. The police officer checked his records which showed that his license was suspended and he has been taken into custody 6 times for extreme DUI. Of 2013, this was his third DUI arrest. Hoover declined to take a field sobriety test and he also refused to give his blood sample for intoxication testing.

Hoover was taken into custody on suspicion of aggravated DUI that’s why a search warrant was granted for Hoover’s blood sample.
