GREENFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

A Franklin County man is under arrest, accused of driving under the influence for a sixth time.

Shortly before 9:30 p.m. Thursday, Greenfield officers were called to help with an incident where a pickup truck had driven up onto someone's lawn and around a home on Lee Road in Deerfield.

Patrols were told be on the lookout for that vehicle and a short time later, an officer reportedly saw that vehicle turning right from Deerfield Street onto Bank Row.

"As the officer approached the operator and asked for his license and registration, the operator explained that he didn't have a license and requested that he could give his keys to his wife, of whom was sitting in the back seat, and said to the officer 'We can all move on from this,'" Greenfield Police said in a Facebook post.

Authorities reportedly found probable cause that the driver - 52-year-old David Brown of Bernardston - was operating the vehicle with a revoked license for habitual traffic offenses and while under the influence of alcoholic beverage (sixth offense).

Brown was arrested and booked at the Greenfield Police Department.  Bail was set at $7,500 and he was transported to the Franklin County House of Correction to be held until released on bail or his arraignment.
