IMPERIAL BEACH (CNS) - An Imperial Beach man was arrested for suspected drunken driving three times in five days, deputies said Sunday.
Sheriff's deputies were called to a report of a drunken driver on Seacoast Drive in Imperial Beach about 6:30 a.m. Sunday. When they arrived they found the driver, David Lakarnafeaux, 44, had walked inside a bar on Palm Avenue and Seacoast Drive, Sgt. Ted Greenwald said.
When deputies arrested him, they discovered that Lakarnafeaux had already been arrested for the same charge twice last week: on Tuesday by San Diego police and on Thursday by the California Highway Patrol, Greenwald said.
Lakarnafeaux was booked into San Diego Central Jail, where he was held on a $100,000 bail. He was scheduled to be arraigned at 9 a.m. on Wednesday in the El Cajon courthouse, according to jail records.
