Meet Joshua Richardson.
Back in December 2017, Richardson was arrested on a suspicion of DUI, which obviously shouldn't be taken lightly, but certainly doesn't make for a wild story in and of itself. But, the Denver Post did a little more digging into Richardson's record and found that the Boulder native has a fondness for the inside of a jail cell.
According to the Post:
- He has eight alcohol-related convictions.
- He's been arrested or ticketed 43 times since 1998.
- Authorities have labeled him a "habitual traffic offender."
- He has a slew of other convictions, including careless driving, assault, obstruction, cruelty to animals, false reporting, and tampering with an interlock device.
In the incident from back in 2017 alone, Richardson definitely had one doozy of a night, as the Denver Post points out.
Per The Denver Post:
A Boulder man with at least eight prior alcohol-related driving convictions was arrested again on Thursday evening after Longmont police say he struck a fence, a shed and a house on the north side of the city.
A good Samaritan is credited with helping police catch the suspect, who they say attempted to run from the scene.
Joshua James Richardson, 47, faces DUI after three or more convictions, a felony charge, along with traffic charges for reckless driving, leaving the scene of an accident, failure to notify police, driving under restraint and no proof of insurance, according to an arrest report.
This, ladies and gentleman, is what you call someone in need of some serious soul searching.
