EAST BOSTON (CBS) – An East Boston man with seven previous OUI arrests and a lifetime license suspension is behind bars after being charged for an eighth time with driving drunk.

State Police arrested 52-year-old Albert Diaz Wednesday night in front of Chelsea High School after a Trooper witnessed him allegedly committing several driving violations in Revere.

Police say Diaz reeked of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes, and flunked a field sobriety test.

State Police later found out that Diaz had already had his license suspended for life over previous OUI violations.

Diaz was arrested and charged with operating under the influence of liquor, marked lanes violations, negligent operation of a motor vehicle, operating a motor vehicle after revocation for OUI, speeding and failure to wear a seat-belt.
