William David Freeman, 47, of Vonore, was charged with public intoxication stemming from the Dec. 21 incident, according to Monroe County Sheriff’s Office online booking records.
Freeman, who delivers mail in Madisonville, was questioned by Madisonville Police Officer Bobby Woods after the postal worker’s supervisor said he smelled alcohol on the man, The Advocate & Democrat of Madisonville reported.
The supervisor said Freeman kept returning to his personal vehicle during his shift to drink alcohol, according to the newspaper.
