UPDATE: A McMinville man who was charged with DUI number 4 in 2011 while visiting Rutherford County has been re-arrested in Rutherford County during a return visit this past weekend. Hector Rayas-Villegas now faces a fourth charge of DUI and also a charge of violation of probation and driving on a revoked license. Confused? According to the DUI charge seen on a Murfreesboro Police Report in 2011, the charge then was DUI number 4. However, the charge seen on a police report from this past weekend showed this most recent charge was again, DUI number 4. Apparently, the charges are over a span of 8-years. The 28-year old was transported to the local jail after being stopped by authorities.

The first time the suspect was arrested in Rutherford County in 2011, he was allegedly found by Murfreesboro Police passed out in his truck. This most recent arrest occurred after he allegedly failed to maintain his lane of travel on Cason Lane. The recent arrest report is filed as number 13-13854.

In Tennessee, the fourth DUI and any DUI after the fourth is considered a class E felony. A class E felony requires the convicted offender to serve a minimum of 150-consecutive days in jail. There is also a mandatory fine of $3,000 to $15,000. The culprits vehicle can also be seized and the offenders drivers license can be revoked for 5-years. In fact, the offender can have his or her vehicle seized after only the second charge of DUI.
