Rochester Man Facing Fourth Felony DWI Case After Blowing a .23
Rochester, MN (KROC AM News) - A Rochester man who has already served prison time for DWI may be headed back after being caught driving while three times over the legal limit.
An Olmsted County deputy made a traffic stop on West Circle Dr. Thursday night and discovered the driver smelled strongly of alcohol. His blood/alcohol level was tested at .23.
Arrested for felony DWI and driving without a license was 39-year-old Olivier Mpagazihe.
He already has four DWI convictions on his record dating back to 2003. Three are felonies and one led to a prison sentence.
Court records show Mpagazihe was arrested for DWI in Ramsey County in 2008. That came just a month after a felony DWI arrest in Rice County while he was living in Northfield.
He was sentenced to 48 months in prison for the Ramsey County conviction.
