A 41-year-old Butte man was arrested Thursday on suspicion of a sixth driving under the influence offense.

Joshua Pilsch was arrested in the parking lot of Walmart at about 3:30 p.m. after police allege he struck another vehicle in his Ford Escape. Investigators reported Pilsch appeared to be highly intoxicated, but he refused to do a field sobriety test or take a breath test.

Police were alerted to this incident after receiving calls of the vehicle driving in the parking lane of Harrison Avenue and almost striking other motorists.

Pilsch remains jailed Friday on felony DUI and a probation violation.
