New Mexico Man Gets 28th DUI Arrest

By Mary Ann

Joseph Brill was arrested for DUI for the 28th time by Albuquerque, New Mexico police after he fell out of his pickup truck.

Albuquerque deputies were working on another case nearby, when Brill pulled his truck into a driveway and literally fell out of the truck. He was charged with DUI (DWI in New Mexico) and violating his parole from a previous DUI.

Brill has now been arrested for DUI 28 times with 14 convictions. He has been imprisoned for DUI twice, serving over a year in jail. Brill’s driver’s license has been revoked for life, but his truck was properly registered in his name. A county sherriff’s deputy said people can register their vehicles with proper insurance and proof of residency.

According to the Albuquerque Tribune, under New Mexico law the maximum sentence for a seventh or subsequent DUI is three years in prison, a $5,000 fine, alcohol treatment, and lifetime driver’s license revocation.
