CATAWBA COUNTY, N.C. -- A Lincolnton man arrested for allegedly driving a moped while drunk has been sentenced.

The District Attorney s Office calls Aaron Barkley, 34, a habitual offender.

He was arrested in May 2012 in Maiden for the moped incident. Police say he drove through a driver s license check point. When he was stopped, officers record a .11 Blood Alcohol Level.

Barkley had been convicted for DWI in three times previously.

A judge sentenced Barkley this week to at least 23 months in jail.
