KODIAK -- The state health inspector for Kodiak has been charged with drunken driving following an accident in a state-owned vehicle.

The Kodiak Daily Mirror says 59-year-old Michael Gardner posted bail and is to be arraigned on Sept. 28.

Kodiak police say Gardner was found at 4:30 p.m. Monday at the scene of a two-car accident at the intersection of Marine Way and Mission Road in downtown Kodiak.

Police say he called to report the accident. A sobriety breath test at the Kodiak Jail revealed a blood-alcohol level of 0.248, more than three times the legal limit of 0.08.

Gardner is the Kodiak-based food inspector for the Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation.
