A Gulfport man is in jail charged with Felony Driving Under the Influence. Gulfport Police said they arrested 52-year-old Junior Ray Moffett Wednesday.

Police said Moffett was in a crash on Highway 49 near Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard Wednesday afternoon. Investigators said Moffett's vehicle rear-ended a stopped 18-wheeler trailer. Officers said they observed that Moffett was intoxicated and arrested him. There were no injuries in the crash.
