Somehow, this interesting story got lost under the pile of papers on my desk, but as Wednesday is hump day and good time to reorganize, here it is.
Last week, a Montana man was arrested twice in the same day for DUI. As if things couldn’t get any weirder in this bizarre episode worthy of “The Twilight Zone,” the perpetrator was arrested both times by the same officer.
An Associated Press story detailed that 42-year-old Adam T. Lundgren was cited for misdemeanor drunken driving by Officer Cody Lanier around 5:30 p.m. on Monday, June 11th. After being released to a sober friend, Lundgren jumped from the friend’s car and returned to downtown Missoula, where he proceeded to drink the night away.
Lundgren crashed into a bridge railing around 10 p.m. of that night and even tried to flee before being captured and subdued by concerned witnesses. Lanier then cited Lundgren with drunken driving, reckless driving, and failing to heed a stop sign. Lundgren posted $700 bond later that night and was finally arrested the following day when he showed up drunk to his Municipal Court Agreement.
