Authorities said Keith Gruber, 49, of Swan Lake, arrived for his 10:30 a.m. Monday pretrial hearing in Judge Frank LaBuda's courtroom in Monticello holding an open can of Busch beer and carrying a bag containing four more cans, the Times Herald-Record of Middletown reported Wednesday.
"It was obvious he was intoxicated," LaBuda said of Gruber, who is facing a felony driving-while-intoxicated charge.
Gruber, who has previous DWI convictions and was out on $30,000 bail at the time of his Monday court appearance, was ordered held without bail.
