A man arrested Sunday after a crash at the intersection of Bobolink Street and Dickie Road made an initial court appearance Monday on felony charges of DUI and criminal endangerment.

The man charged with causing the crash, 48-year-old Melvin Oscar Marry, has seven prior DUI convictions, according to prosecutors.

Troopers with the Montana Highway Patrol investigated the wreck and learned from witnesses that the driver of a Chevrolet Corvette, identified as Marry, failed to give right of way at the intersection and hit an SUV, causing multiple injuries.

A trooper reported that Marry admitted drinking a “few beers.” When Marry was being given a breath test at the county jail, he asked if the test would show that he had taken two shots of whiskey, court records say.

The test showed that Marry had a blood-alcohol concentration of .112 percent, according to charging documents.

Justice Court Judge David A. Carter set Marry’s bond at $25,000 and ordered him to appear June 20 for arraignment in district court.
