DARLINGTON - A Belmont man released from jail less than a week earlier on a $2,000 cash bond for his eighth drunk driving charge was arrested Monday for felony bail jumping. Douglas E. Popp, 52, was jailed after a deputy responded at 9:44 p.m. Monday to a report of a suspicious person on West Mound View Avenue in Belmont, according to the Lafayette County Sheriff's Office. Popp has six drunk driving convictions on his record and is currently facing his seventh and eighth offenses in Lafayette County Circuit Court.
