California DUI Teen gets 3 DUI 's in 11 days

California DUI lawyer news

Police in the San Francisco suburb of Morgan Hill say 19-year-old Anthony Maher was arrested three times in eleven days for California DUI driving under the influence.

For two of the California DUI arrests, investigators say his blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit.

During one of the California DUI incidents, Maher caused a California DUI collision between two other vehicles.

"It's appalling. It's shocking. It's my understanding he's 19 years old, so he's not even technically legally old enough to be drinking, but to be drinking at 19 and then driving not once, not twice, but three times is unbelievable," said Alameda County Mothers Against Drunk Driving president Patti Eichhorn.

Maher did not go to county jail because he has no prior DUI convictions on his record.

He was cited for each California DUI misdemeanor offense.

The California DMV may suspend Maher's license for one year.

If he's convicted for a fourth California DUI within the next ten years, the offense will count as a California DUI felony.
