MANITOWOC, Wis. (AP) - A Two Rivers man who was convicted of eighth-offense driving while intoxicated has been sentenced to three years in prison.
David F. Lawler pleaded no contest this week to the drunken-driving charge.
Mishicot police say the 56-year-old was stopped in August for driving with a revoked license. A police report says an officer smelled alcohol on Lawler's breath and observed that Lawler's eyes were bloodshot and his speech slurred.
A criminal complaint says he told officers he'd drunk at least a 12-pack of beer.
Prosecutors say his blood-alcohol level was 0.264 percent, or more than three times the legal limit.
A message left with his public defender Saturday wasn't immediately returned.
The Manitowoc Herald Times Reporter says Lawler's most recent previous convictions were in 2008, 2006 and 2004.
