Spartanburg Police said a man was charged with Driving Under the Influence after officers found him passed out in his car in the turning lane of East Blackstock Road at the intersection of John B. White Sr. Blvd. on Saturday.

Officers said the car was running and the doors were locked, and said an EMS paramedic had to break the driver's side window in order to rouse the man, later identified as Rudolfo Pineda, 50, of Spartanburg.

Officers said Pineda was taken into custody after he failed a field sobriety test and blew a Breathalyzer sample at .18.
