MOORESVILLE, N.C. (AP) - NASCAR Nationwide Series driver Michael Annett has been charged with driving while impaired following a two-car accident.
Annett, entering his first season for Rusty Wallace Racing, also was charged with resisting arrest, failure to reduce speed and unlawful use of a mobile phone to text or send e-mail. All counts are misdemeanors. He has a March 18 court date.
According to Mooresville Police, Annett had a blood-alcohol level of 0.32 percent - well above the 0.08 legal limit in North Carolina - after he rear-ended another car at a red light early Sunday.
A police officer witnessed the crash and says Annett shoved breath mints in his mouth as he approached Annett's vehicle, prompting a field-sobriety test.
