A Waltham resident was arrested in Newton, Massachusetts for driving under the influence of alcohol after he crashed into several parked cars. According to the Waltham Patch, 30 year old A.F. was charged with his third DUI, as well as violation of marked lanes. Just after midnight on April 7th, law enforcement officials responded to a call for a drunk driver. Upon arrival, police found the suspect asleep in the driver's seat of a black GMC Yukon. After searching the vehicle, police allegedly found eight open containers of alcohol.
It seemed as though the driver had veered off the road into the cars that were parked in a driveway. Police say that the man had slurred speech, red eyes, and bloodshot eyes, which are all common signs of drunk driving. The penalty for a third DUI in Massachusetts is 150 days to five years in jail, license suspension for up to eight years, fines of up to $15,000, and the installation of an ignition interlock device.
