Police: Drunken Driver Arrested Twice In 2 Hours

View Comments

WINONA, Minn. (WCCO) — A driver apparently didn’t learn his lesson the first time, because police say they pulled him over twice in two hours for driving while intoxicated.

The incidents happened Friday in Winona.

Police said they stopped 41-year-old Larry Payne near a bar at 1:30 a.m. and determined his blood alcohol level to be above the legal limit.

Payne was arrested, cited and released.

However, police spotted Payne driving a different car two hours later.

The same officer who apprehended him the first time knew Payne hadn’t had enough time to sober up, and arrested him a second time.
