For a third time a Murfreesboro man has been charged with DUI.
49-Year-old Mark Carter was arrested after a motor vehicle accident near South Rutherford Boulevard at the Circle K Convenience Store. The wreck occurred on July 10th.
Police say when they arrived Carter was witnessed to be behind the wheel of a green Chevrolet Camaro that was sideways in a ditch and against a utility pole.
