A Clayton man faces his fourth charge of driving while impaired after an arrest Saturday night.

Wake County deputies pulled over Eric Fitzpatrick Scarborough, 37, on Poole Road after they observed him driving his mo-ped erratically, according to the warrant for his arrest.

Scarborough, of 332 W. Second St., had his license been revoked because he had DWI convictions from August 2006, July 2007 and May 2010, according to court documents.

Officers wrote that Scarborough was "swerving dangerously" and that he had "red, glassy eyes and a strong odor of alcohol."

Scarborough refused a breath test and was taken into custody. He is charged with habitual impaired driving.
