MARTINSBURG, W.Va. (AP) - A prosecutor says a West Virginia man was "highly intoxicated" when he was arrested near two schools while running in desert camouflage with an AR-15 training rifle.
Berkeley County Prosecutor Pamela Games-Neely said Thursday that 23-year-old William Everett Alemar's blood-alcohol level was more than 0.20 percent. West Virginia's threshold for drivers is 0.08 percent.
The 23-year-old Alemar was charged with committing a terrorist act after Martinsburg police on Monday found him carrying two knives and several unloaded ammunition clips, and wearing a bulletproof vest.
The Virginia National Guard member returned in December from a tour of duty in Iraq.
Alemar is being held on $50,000 bond at the Eastern Regional Jail. The Journal (http://bit.ly/NmvGXD) reports a preliminary hearing is set for Aug. 29 in Berkeley County Magistrate Court.
