Felony drunk driving alleged

A 57-year-old Toledo man was arraigned Tuesday in 86th District Court on felony drunken driving charges.

Craig B. Jakielek is currently free on a $100 interim bond.

The charge stems from a Dec. 17 incident in which Jakielek was stopped by a Leelanau County sheriff’s deputy after being spotted driving erratically on M-22 in Bingham Township, according to a court report.

After the deputy allegedly smelled alcohol, Jakielek admitted to drinking and failed field sobriety tests, the report said. A PBT done at the scene registered an alcohol level of .164 percent, the report said. Breathalyzer tests done at the station showed a level of .17 percent, the report said.

Jakielek has been convicted of drunken driving in 1978 and in 2015, both in 86th District Court.

A probable cause conference for Jakielek has been set for Jan. 17 and a preliminary examination for Jan. 31.
