DOVER, N.H. — A man charged in the submarine fire at Portsmouth Naval Shipyard was arrested for allegedly driving while intoxicated last month.

The Portsmouth Herald reports that 24-year-old Casey James Fury was arrested for allegedly driving while intoxicated and striking a parked car while in the midst of an investigation into his ties to a fire on the nuclear submarine USS Miami.

Fury was arrested by Dover police on June 14 after a patrol officer observed him driving erratically. He was charged with DWI-second offense after an accident.

He was scheduled to be arraigned in Dover District Court on Monday, but was taken into custody by agents with the Naval Criminal Investigative Service on July 20. He’s charged with two counts of arson for the submarine fire.
