KINGMAN, Ariz. (AP) -- A Kingman man suspected drinking and driving failed a field sobriety test after results showed a blood alcohol level described by law enforcement as super extreme.

The Daily Miner reports Shaun Lewis Deter, 60, was arrested Wednesday after reportedly flagging down a firefighter to help him find his car keys, which were on his dashboard.

The firefighter assessed Deter's condition and called Sheriff's deputies after suspecting Deter was drunk.

Sheriff's spokeswoman Trish Carter says deputies took Deter into custody after Deter failed a field sobriety test. Deter's blood alcohol level was reportedly 0.215.

Deter was booked into the Mohave County Jail on charges of driving under the influence and super extreme DUI with a blood alcohol concentration over 0.20.
