Salisbury man charged with 5th OUI

(Continued)

With officer Michael Tullercash assisting, Leavitt placed a combative Pratt under arrest. Pratt yelled at police and threatened to sue. During a search of the suspect at the station, officers found an oxycodone tablet, a potent painkiller available only with a prescription, which has an extremely high street resale value on the street.

It is unknown whether Pratt agreed to a blood alcohol level test either during his arrest or at the Railroad Avenue police station. A check of Pratt’s criminal record showed his most recent drunken-driving convictions were in 2002 and 1998.
