Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail said that Surry County Commonwealth's Attorney Gerald Poindexter bonded out of jail late Saturday or early Sunday, following his arrest for Driving Under the Influence.
James City County police officers took Poindexter into custody at the Jamestown Ferry Dock shortly after 3:30 p.m. Saturday. Ferry officials called them to report a minor car crash involving an intoxicated driver.
Police said that driver was 73-year-old Poindexter and that he hit a curb while getting on the ferry on the Surry County side of the James River.
Ferry attendants tried to stop him from continuing to board, but told officers Poindexter drove onto the ferry and hit another vehicle, causing minor damage.
Officials suspected Poindexter was under the influence of alcohol.
Besides facing a DUI charge, Poindexter faces a charge for No Driver's License in Possession.
He was being held on a $2,500 unsecured bond before his release.
