A Wakeman man was charged with operating a snowmobile while intoxicated Tuesday after an incident on Fitchville-River Road.

Andrew Dalton, 24, of West River Road, was charged with OVI after deputies, who were in the area on a separate call, noticed Dalton walking away from a snowmobile that was resting in a creek bed.

The incident took place at 4:21 p.m., according to Huron County Sheriff's Major Greg Englund.

Englund said Dalton refused the breath test and was charged.

Dalton spent the 2011 holiday season behind bars after being convicted of a hit-skip violation, failure to yield from a private driveway and being an intoxicated pedestrian on a highway. A judge denied Dalton's request to get an early release from his 180-day jail sentence.

The convictions are for a two-vehicle collision June 19, 2011 on U.S. 250 in front of Expressions Gentleman's Club, which injured a Castalia family of five who were on their way to a vacation in North Carolina.

Dalton also made headlines for a driving-related incident in 2010. He was charged with failure to control after crashing the front end of a 2007 Ford F-150 pickup truck into the front of the Burnham Orchards store in mid-June.
