WESTMINSTER, Md. (AP) - A Westminster man has been accused of driving under the influence and trying to elude a deputy through a wheat field.

The Carroll County Times (https://bit.ly/1I89aQs ) reports 26-year-old George David Bopst was arrested early Sunday morning after a deputy clocked the Jeep Wrangler Bopst was in traveling 51 miles per hour in a 40 mile per hour zone.

The deputy says he tried to catch up to the Jeep and Bopst increased his speed, launching off an embankment, landing in a wheat field and destroying crops. The deputy chased the vehicle on foot when the Jeep crossed another embankment and came to rest in a pond.

Bopst told the deputy he had five servings of beer at a friend’s home. He performed poorly on standardized field sobriety tests.
