Given that stat it is amazing that someone can actually get caught three, four, five and many more. Such is the case with these real life DUI serial offenders.

Troy Parks, a 44-year-old from Springfield, Tennessee just received his fifth DUI. How can we keep people like him off the road? You can suspend their license, but you can’t keep them from driving. As reported in

Parks was spotted swerving all over the road. When stopped not only did he reek of booze, but the arresting officer found five alcoholic beverages behind the driver’s seat.

Parks was unable to pass the first sobriety test, and he lost his balance while attempting to perform a second test.

Parks remains in the Robertson County Jail on a $40,000 bond. Parks has four other prior DUI charges; three in Robertson County and one in Sumner County between 1992-2005, according to the report.
