(CBS Native) — A ordinary drunk driver apparently didn’t study his lesson after being arrested for the tenth time in Santa Fe, New Mexico. The repeat offender was caught for his eleventh DWI, simply hours after being launched from jail.
Henry Gonzales was pulled over 10 hours after serving an 18-month jail sentence for his tenth drunk driving arrest on Nov. four. The forty three-yr-previous is accused of weaving out and in of visitors at over seventy five miles per hour and was reportedly discovered with an empty liquor bottle when he was stopped.
This chase was one of many extra violent Gonzales has had with officers, who have been pressured to make use of cease sticks and taser the driving force. “He has had a number of alternatives to realize the instruments he wants and coping expertise to stay sober. [He] chooses to not make the most of them,” the New Mexico Corrections Division’s Melanie Martinez informed the Santa Fe New Mexican.
Whereas prosecutors say Gonzales has solely eight official convictions for his drunk driving, a brand new state regulation will doubtless make his newest arrest the most expensive one but. A ninth DWI conviction will now ship the forty three-yr-previous to jail for no less than 10 years.
