Oakville Man Faces Sixth Drunk Driving Charge
The man has one DWI charge carried over from 2012, and has pleaded guilty to four other alcohol-related charges.
An Oakville man faces his sixth alcohol-related driving charge after St. Louis County Police pulled him over Saturday on Telegraph Road at Reavis Barracks Road.
St. Louis County Police said Eugene Nesser, 42, tried to run from a traffic stop, but was caught nearby. Officers said they saw signs that Nesser was intoxicated, including watery and bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, a strong odor of alcohol, and he staggered while walking or standing still.
Police said Nesser fell down at the St. Louis County precinct station, and a breathalyzer test showed he had a .115 blood-alcohol content.
Nesser was charged Sunday with DWI as a chronic offender. He also was charged Sept. 10 with DWI as a persistent offender after St. Louis County Police pulled him over March 1.
Nesser also had four previous alcohol-related convictions in St. Louis County:
- Pleaded guilty to driving with excessive blood-alcohol in October 1988
- Pleaded guilty to DWI in April 1990
- Pleaded guilty to DWI in October 1996
- Pleaded guilty to DWI in November 1996
Nesser was being held in St. Louis County jail on Tuesday. Bail was set at $50,000, cash only.
