BOISE, Idaho -- A Fruitland man who was shot and critically injured by a police officer in December of 2011 has been arrested by Boise police for excessive driving under the influence with a suspended license.

Boise Police say they arrested 38-year-old Jamee Lee Wade just before midnight on Thursday.

Officers say they stopped Lee after getting a citizen tip about a possible drunk driver near 13th and Fort Street, then observing Wade run a red light.

Police say Wade then failed a a field sobriety test, and afterwards took a breathalyzer that indicated his blood-alcohol level was 0.23, or nearly three times the legal limit.

A check through Ada County Records indicates Wade has prior convictions for DUI along with a suspended license, making this charge a felony.

Wade has not been charged in the Fruitland case.
