STANTON — A Greenville man was sent to prison Thursday after driving and crashing a moped while drunk.

Daniel Fuller, 61, previously pleaded guilty in 8th Judicial Circuit Court to operating while intoxicated third offense. A second count of driving with a suspended license second offense and a habitual offender third offense notice were dropped in exchange for his plea.

Fuller was operating a moped westbound on VanDeinse Avenue in Greenville around 7 p.m. Dec. 12, 2011, when he swerved and crashed. Greenville Department of Public Safety Officer William Timmins responded to the crash.

Fuller declined medical treatment.

He was found to have a blood alcohol content of 0.19 more than twice the legal limit of 0.08 in Michigan.
Fuller was sentenced Thursday to from 18 months to five years in prison.

“Hopefully this will be that wake-up call that stops you from drinking and driving,” said Judge David Hoort.

Fuller has eight prior drinking and driving offenses. This is his third felony conviction.
