Suspect Facing Second DUI Arrest in Three Weeks

KRON San Francisco reports that a man who was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol just three weeks ago has been arrested for the second time after a crash in Santa Rosa earlier this week. 

According to a statement released by the Santa Rosa Police Department, officers arrested 24-year-old Jack Hauptman in the 3500 block of Westbound Highway 12 at approximately 11:15 p.m. on Monday, October 2, after 911 dispatchers received a call reporting a silver Subaru Outback on its side.

Santa Rosa Police Department officers, paramedics, and firefighters responded to the scene of the single-vehicle crash. 

Police say that Hauptman displayed signs of intoxication, including slurred speech and red, watery eyes. A breathalyzer test revealed that Hauptman had a blood alcohol level nearly three times the legal limit of .08 percent. 

Hautman was placed under arrest and was transported to an area hospital for treatment of minor injuries. No other injuries were reported.

Upon his release by doctors, he was booked into jail on the charge of driving under the influence of alcohol with a blood alcohol content of .08 percent or greater. 

Court documents indicate that Hauptman had a previous DUI arrest just three weeks ago, where his blood alcohol level was also above .08 percent.

No further information was available at the time of the report.
