An Anchorage car dealer has been charged with driving under the influence of drugs twice in three days, according to charging documents.
Calvin Christian Worthington, 33, was arrested on Aug. 1 and 3. He is the president and CEO of Cal Worthington Ford and owner of Merdedes-Benz of Anchorage.
The Aug. 1 incident started about 7:45 p.m. when police received several reports of a single-vehicle accident on the Seward Highway near Potter Valley. Responding officers found Worthington in a Mercedes-Benz. They saw signs of intoxication, according to the charges, and although a breath test registered no alcohol, Worthington consented to a blood test and examination by a drug-recognition expert, which led to his arrest.
According to court records, Worthington posted bail and was released from jail the next day, Aug. 2.
On Aug. 3, a police officer stopped Worthington for an unspecified traffic violation near Sixth Avenue and C Street, according to a second charging document. A breath test was negative, but the officer conducted field-sobriety tests and arrested Worthington for impaired driving, records show.
On Tuesday, District Court Judge William Fuld set bail at $5,000, and required a third-party custodian.
