Man arrested for two DUI’s in one day

SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. – n A 61-year-old man from Williams, Calif. was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence twice in one day, according to a Douglas County Sheriff’s deputy’s report.

The man was arrested about 5:30 p.m. Friday after a deputy clocked him driving 62 mph in a 45 mph zone on U.S. Highway 50 near Warrior Way, according to the report.

The man was placed under arrest after he agreed to a preliminary breath test, which showed he had a blood-alcohol level of .112 percent.

While being taken to Douglas County’s Stateline jail facility, dispatchers informed the deputy the man had been arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence in Quincy, Calif. earlier that morning.

At the jail, a phlebotomist conducting a blood test on the man expressed concerns he was suffering from alcohol poisoning.

He was cited for driving under the influence of alcohol, speeding and not having proof of insurance and taken to Barton Memorial Hospital.
