A 23-year-old man was arrested and charged with driving while intoxicated Sunday morning after Denton police said they found him parked in a vehicle with its emergency flashers running, according to a police report.

The report says a 911 caller told dispatchers that a car hit a median located near West University Drive and Town Center Boulevard. The caller said the vehicle hit the median and was stopped in the area.

Police said the man was given field sobriety tests and was determined to be drunk. Officers arrested the man and took him to the Denton City Jail. Police records show the man was charged with his second DWI offense.
