    A 50-year-old man was arrested for his third alleged DUI within 10 years Saturday after a Utah Highway Patrol trooper investigating a hit-and-run crash found him and a woman trying to change a perfectly fine tire.

    Kevin Howard Harris was also charged with two counts of possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, failure to remain at the scene of an accident, using plates registered to another vehicle, driving on a suspended or revoked license, failure to operate within a single lane, and driving a vehicle without an interlock system as required by law.

    The trooper in his report said he was investigating a hit-and-run accident on Interstate 70 near westbound exit 221. He located the vehicle and noted “extensive damage.” A man and woman were attempting to “take a good tire off of the passenger rear side and replace it with the spare, even though there was a blown tire on the driver’s side of the vehicle.”

    The woman initially said she had been driving, but later said Harris was the alleged driver and that he would be mad at her for admitting she had lied.

    A computer check revealed Harris had two prior DUI convictions, that his license was revoked, and the plates were registered to a different vehicle.

    Harris refused to perform field sobriety tests.

    Marijuana and the associated paraphernalia also were allegedly found in the vehicle.
