At 12:02 a.m., a Nevada Highway Patrol trooper stopped a vehicle traveling southbound on U.S. 395 just south of the Neil Road interchange. The silver 2003 Nissan Murano SUV was clocked at 114 miles per hour in a 65 mph zone.
The driver, 44-year-old Sung Moon Min of Reno, displayed signs of intoxication while talking to the trooper. Min failed to a series of field sobriety tests and a records check revealed that his privileges to drive in Nevada were suspended. He was arrested without incident.
Additionally, the trooper learned that Min had a previous felony DUI conviction. He had been charged in an alcohol-related crash involving a death in the Reno area and arrested on August 22, 2004. Min was convicted for that crime on Nov. 14, 2006.
He was taken to the Washoe County jail where he submitted to a legal series blood test. He was booked into the jail on charges of felony DUI, speed, 114 mph in a 65 mph zone and suspended driver’s license.
He was still in custody Monday afternoon with a bail of $8,140.
