Blotter: Man charged with habitual drunk driving
A homeless Salisbury man was charged Tuesday with habitual impaired driving after being convicted three previous times of driving while impaired.
The most recent driving while intoxicated charge for Dennis James Hunsucker, 60, came on Sept. 12, according to a Rowan County Sheriff’s Office arrest report. The report says Hunsucker was in court on Tuesday for the previous offense, when an assistant district attorney asked a sheriff’s deputy to charge the man with habitual driving while impaired.
State law allows any person convicted of driving while impaired three times in 10 years to be charged with the habitual offense.
Hunsucker’s address is listed as “streets of Salisbury” on arrest forms.
Jail records show Hunsucker has been incarcerated since Sept. 12. He is in jail under a $5,500 bail. Hunsucker’s charges include driving while impaired, communicating threats and habitual impaired driver.
