Kansas dad nabbed for DUI twice in one day

A Kansas man has been arrested for two separate DUI incidents in the same day, according to Olathe authorities, who say they apprehended the man a second time as he was speeding with his toddler in the backseat. The man, age 47, is now facing charges for driving under the influence, along with endangering the welfare of a child and driving on a suspended license. He is being held on a surprising $100,000 bond, largely because of the proximity of the two arrests, according to law enforcement officers.

Authorities report that the man was arrested while he was traveling at 100 mph with his 2-year-old child in the backseat. He was allegedly intoxicated at the time of that incident. Further investigation revealed that the man has been arrested on DUI charges four times in the past eight months. Those arrests came on May 13, June 26 and then the two on Dec. 11.

The driver is a former elite athlete who had played under coach Bobby Knight at Indiana University in the 1980s. He had also been a professional basketball player in foreign markets before returning to the United States, according to news reports.

Even though this man is considered a repeat offender, he still deserves the respect and dignity afforded to every criminal defendant in the American court system. Defendants who are facing charges for multiple OUI offenses may need the assistance of a qualified criminal defense attorney to help them understand more about the qualities of their cases. Multiple DUI offenses often carry higher penalties and other unique characteristics that are not encountered by first-time offenders. A Kansas criminal defense attorney can help these drunk-driving defendants learn more about their legal rights, even after a slew of DUI allegations.
