Councilman Samuel Moxley guilty of DUI ... 2nd incident in five years

Bryan Sears* has the story in the Catonsville Times. The punishment:
. . . a suspended 60-day sentence . . . two years of monitored probation . . .
[his] car [to] be equipped with a steering wheel interlock device, a mobile breathalyzer that requires the driver to blow into a tube to prove he is not intoxicated before starting his vehicle and at random times while on the road . . . 85 hours of community service in Baltimore [City].
The article also mentions suspension of Moxley's driver's license for a year, but the article doesn't make clear whether that is for the 2009 charge or the 2005 charge.

Moxley really needs to resign.

A good question from ASA John Mitchell:
“How many bites at the apple will he get before he goes to jail?”
Here are some details of Mr. Moxley's drunk driving record from his Wikipedia page:

In 2005 Councilman Moxley was sentenced to year of supervised probation for driving under the influence.

On July 23, 2009, Councilman Moxley was arrested on charges of driving under the influence of alcohol.

According to a Baltimore City Police report, Moxley was involved in a four vehicle accident on Route 40, near the 400 block of N. Pulaski Street in west Baltimore. . . [he] failed to stop at a red traffic signal at Rt 40 and N. Pulaski Street striking a vehicle. . .

Authorities say Moxley failed a field sobriety test and refused to take a breathalyzer.

*Bryan seems like a very nice guy, but his blog photo has a definite Lex Luthor look to it.
