According to court documents, Lawler showed signs of intoxication when he was stopped, and his blood-alcohol level tested at .133 percent, above Iowa's legal limit of 0.08 percent.

Police found Lawler in possession of keys and a keyless entry remote for a 1999 Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck that had been stolen Saturday from the parking lot at the McDonald's at 4105 Morningside Ave., court documents said. The pickup was recovered near the location where the Lincoln had been stolen, and the rear license plate had been changed.
