Marion man charged with DUI on I-57

A Marion man was arrested on I-57 Sunday night after two different callers reported the sound of gunshots coming from a van driving up the interstate.

Jefferson County Deputies pulled over 28 year old Brent Tite just south of Mount Vernon. Authorities say the suspect and his passenger were lighting fireworks as they drove through traffic.

Tite is charged with aggravated DUI after authorities say his blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit. They found beer and M-80 style fireworks when they searched his car.
