Police in South San Francisco arrested a man whom they allege is a multiple DUI offender.
William Aguero, 53, was arrested by South San Francisco police at 7:14 a.m. after they responded to a call at King and Newman Drives. There, they allegedly found Aguero asleep behind the wheel of his car.
The car, according to police, was halfway up on the sidewalk, still in gear, engine running. Police and paramedics took Aguero out of the car. He was unable to walk unassisted.
Police allege that Aguero was under the influence of alcohol.
A witness advised the police that Aguero nearly hit a pedestrian when he went up onto the sidewalk. Police are hoping to identify the pedestrian so that they can interview him about the incident.
Aguero was taken to a local hospital to be evaluated. There, he was arrested on suspicion of DUI. He also faces charges of driving on a suspended license. His license had been suspended due to a previous DUI conviction.
If you do not learn your lesson after being convicted of your first DUI and you choose to drink and drive again, the penalties for doing so are increased significantly. Longer jail sentences and more expensive fines await those who commit multiple DUIs. After the first conviction, which mandates a license suspension period of four months, minimum, your license may be suspended for at least one year.
