January 2, 2020 GMT

Authorities say an Uber driver in North Dakota is suspected of driving drunk with a passenger on New Year’s Eve.

The state patrol says a trooper pulled over 45-year-old Mark Kellah for allegedly running a red light. The trooper says he later found an open container in the car.

Authorities say Kellah’s blood-alcohol level was far beyond the legal limit. He’s been booked into the Cass County Jail and it’s unknown whether he has an attorney yet.

KFGO-AMreports that Kellah’s passenger was given a safe drive home.
