Man charged with 17th DUI

SHERBROOKE, Que. ā€” A Quebec man has been charged with DUI for the 17th time, according to the Montreal Gazette.

The man, Maurice Larrivee, who now has a 17th DUI on his record, allegedly showed up Sunday morning at a grocery store to buy a case of beers at 8:45 a.m.

According to the report, the cashier warned the 69-year-old man that he appeared too drunk to drive.

Several other employees tried to convince the man not to get back in the car, however Larrivee allegedly ignored the request, and left. That’s when store employees called the police, in Sherbrooke, Que.

The 69-year-old was arrested in the parking lot.

The last time Larrivee was charged with DUI, in 2005, he lost his license for five years.
