MONROE - A Monroe man with five prior drunk driving convictions was convicted Tuesday of a sixth drunk driving offense.

Jeffrey E. Flick, 51, was found guilty due to a guilty plea for driving while intoxicated, a Class H Felony. He was sentenced to one year initial confinement with the option for work release so long as he reports and remains alcohol-free. Flick will be on probation, will have his driver's license revoked for 36 months and is required to undergo alcohol and other drug abuse prevention classes. He was fined $2,115, which includes the cost of probation and alcohol assessment classes.

Court records indicate Flick was charged with drunk driving in May of 2012 after a police officer stopped him for speeding and driving erratically on County Y by Joy Del Road, Town of Monroe. Flick told the officer he had not had any alcohol and that there were no intoxicants in his 2006 Ford truck. The officer found a half-empty Busch light can in the cup holder of the truck as well as nine other various types of beer cans.

Flick registered a .179 percent on the preliminary breath test on scene.

Flick had previously been found guilty of OWI in November 1991, April 2000, January 2004, December 2005 and August 2006.
