A Bryan man was arrested early Saturday morning after police found him sleeping in a vehicle in the middle of the road.

The incident that culminated with the man's arrest began when Brazos County Sheriff's Deputies were called to the East Old San Antonio Road near Wheelock Hall Road by a caller who said there was a road hazard.

That "road hazard" turned out to be the 40-year-old man, police said, who had parked his Ford F-150 pickup truck so that it was partially in the road.

Supposedly, the driver was found asleep at the wheel.

The deputies then determined that the man was intoxicated, but it is not quite clear how that was figured out. If they gave him a blood-alcohol content test or field-sobriety tests, that information has not been disseminated.

The man was convicted of burglary in October and was found to have had a .22 caliber rifle in the back of his car. Because of that, the man was also charged with unlawful possession of a firearm by a felon.
