Bloomington man sentenced to more than 5 years for 13th DWI conviction

 


A Bloomington man with at least a dozen drunken-driving convictions was sentenced to 5½ years in prison Thursday for his 13th offense.

Douglas J. McCready, 40, had a blood alcohol content of 0.24 percent — three times the legal limit for driving in Minnesota — when he was arrested in September after refusing to pull over on Interstate 35W between Arden Hills and Bloomington. A 911 caller spotted McCready’s pickup truck and attached trailer that evening as it was “swerving all over the road,” leading officers on a 13-mile chase that ended at his own driveway.

In the preceding 20 years, McCready had at least 12 drunken-driving convictions, including several that involved levels of drunkenness near or exceeding September’s level, according to court records.
