RIDGELAND, MS (WLBT) - Stuart Irby is free on bond after being arrested for DUI and careless driving.  He was arrested, on his motorcycle, around 7:30 Sunday evening in Ridgeland.

An unidentified witness says she saw Irby pull his boat into its slip at Pier "C" in Madison County around 7pm, adding that he had a hard time keeping his balance as he left the boat.

The witness says that the first time Irby tried to crank motorcycle, he fell over, but finally got it cranked and left.

According to the police report, a Ridgeland police officer saw Irby run a red light on Old Canton Road, at William Boulevard, and he was traveling at a high rate of speed.

When the officer pulled him over, his eyes were bloodshot and glassy, he seemed lethargic and slurred his speech. He told the officer he had one martini.

Irby tested 0.09 on the breathalyzer. He was released after posting $1,000 bond.

Irby surrendered himself to Madison Police on March 3rd, and was charged with Cyberstalking. He's free on $50,000 bond on that charge. One condition of his bond on that charge was that he drink no alcohol. 

His wife, Karen Irby, is currently serving a prison sentence for driving drunk in an accident that killed two people in 2009.

A motion was filed Monday in Madison Municipal Court to revoke Irby's bond. The hearing will be held before Judge Dale Danks Tuesday
