A 69 year old Canadian man was recently charged with his 17th DUI offense! The man was caught driving drunk after stopping at a liquor store at 8:30 in the morning. He was at the liquor store to pick up a case of beer. The employees at the store tried to convince the man that he was too drunk to drive. The employees contacted police when the man ignored their advice and got into his car and drove away from the store. The man was last charged with DUI in 2005. He had his license suspended for 5 years at that time.
While we are not sure what will happen to the man under the applicable Canadian laws, but we are sure that he is lucky that he did not do this in Colorado. The mandatory jail statutes in Colorado would definitely put this man in jail for a long period of time. Denver and all other Colorado jurisdictions are very strict on drinking and driving offenses.
