A 22-year-old man was charged with driving while impaired after he crashed into a pole at the Sheetz, left the scene and later threatened an officer while at the Pitt County Detention Center. 

Tyler Ray Brown, 22, of 803 E. Third Street crashed into a pole at the Sheetz gas station, left the scene and was later stopped at Reade and East Fifth Street at 1:50 p.m. on Sept. 11, according to a weekly review of Pitt County court records.

While at the Pitt County Detention Center, Brown refused to sit or walk and was trying to force his way out of the DWI testing room. 

He told an officer, ‘I’m going to kill you when I get out on the streets. I’m going to have my hitman kill you.” He had a strong odor of alcohol on his breath and red, glassy eyes and could not stand up straight. His blood alcohol level was 0.26

Brown was among two others charged with driving while impaired according to court records and law enforcement reports available between Sept. 9 and Sept. 16. In the other cases, court documents indicate:

■ Samantha Lee Martin, 23, of 3940 Bostic Drive, was stopped at 1:07 a.m. on Sept. 15,  near Charles Street and Berkshire by the Greenville Police Department. Martin has a pending DUI charge from January. She had red eyes and was unsteady on her feet.  Her blood alcohol level was 0.16.

■ Matthew Raymond Webster, 34, of 7022 County Home Road, Ayden, was stopped at 2 a.m. on Sept. 13, near Elm Street and 10th Street by the Greenville Police Department. He had red, glassy eyes, slurred speech and was unsteady on his feet. His blood alcohol level was 0.08
