MACHIAS – A 37-year-old Machias man with a prior DWI conviction was stopped by state police on State Route 16 about 5:44 p.m. Tuesday after they received a 911 call about a suspicious car.

Erik H. Hyden was charged with a felony count of driving while intoxicated after it was confirmed that he had a prior DWI conviction and at the time of his arrest he had a blood-alcohol level of 0.18 per cent, more than twice the state’s legal limit. Hyden faces proceedings in several weeks in Machias Town Court.
