Bradford L. Saville, a 22-year-old Rockport man, was arrested on a drunken driving charge Sunday about 1:04 a.m., after an officer observed him brake and cross over the center line on Essex Avenue.
Saville, who lives on Shetland Road, initially told officers he had not had any alcohol to drink. But he failed four sobriety tests and police found a 30 pack of Natural Light Beer, containing only two full cans, along with two empty fireball cinnamon whiskey nip bottles, and an empty tequila one.
Police towed the vehicle from the scene.

The three men who gave their addresses as Action Shelter residents — Jeffrey Richard Carpenter, 24; Jonathan C. Trefry, 32; and Cory M. Bundy, 21 — were each charged with drinking in public and disturbing the peace after police found them with three partially empty vodka bottles.
Trefry faced an additional charge of disorderly conduct because he swore and yelled as police arrested him.
