Driving drunk for the sixth time landed a Superior man behind bars for two years.
Daryl Ray Warring, 46, pleaded no contest in Douglas County Circuit Court last week to sixth offense operating while intoxicated. He was sentenced to two years in prison and three years of extended supervision. His driver’s license was revoked for three years and he was ordered to undergo an alcohol assessment and install an ignition interlock.
Charges of sixth offense operating with a prohibited alcohol concentration and operating while revoked were dismissed.
According to the criminal complaint:
Superior Police Officer Christopher Woolery was dispatched to an area near the Broadway Super America station for a report of a possible intoxicated driver on Feb. 17.
He found the vehicle parked and running behind a residence on the 1100 block of Hughitt Avenue. The driver, later identified as Warring, admitted he had gone to get something to eat.
Woolery asked if he thought it was a good idea, and Warring said it wasn’t because he had been drinking.
The Superior man did poorly on field sobriety tests and blew a 0.23 on a preliminary breath test. He told Woolery, he had consumed a pint of vodka and beer prior to driving.
