Deja DUI

Why does this story sound so very familiar?

Authorities say they arrested an upstate New York man twice in less than an hour for driving drunk. Oneida County deputies said the man was initially stopped Monday at about 1:26 a.m. near Westmoreland for moving from his lane unsafely.

After he was charged, he was released to another person. Deputies said the man's blood-alcohol level at the time was .25 percent — more than triple the state's legal limit of .08 percent.

About 30 minutes later, deputies spotted the same man's vehicle in Rome and stopped him for failing to keep right.
Oh, that's right. It's because I had a post just last week that was essentially the same story, but in a different state. Weird.

Anyway, it seems some jurisdictions are going to have to rethink their policies on releasing DUI suspects into someone else's care.
