East Boston man faces eighth OUI charge
State Police report an East Boston man who's already been ordered to stay away from the wheel for the rest of his life was arrested for drunk driving Wednesday night in Revere.
Albert Diaz, 52, stunk of booze and had glassy, bloodshot eyes when a state trooper stopped him around 11 p.m. after spotting him speeding and weaving on Rte. 16 in a Hyundai, police say.
Diaz is under a lifetime driving suspension because of all his prior OUI convictions, police say.
This time around, he faces charges of 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 seatbelt. The Suffolk County District Attorney's office reports he was ordered held without bail pending a dangerousness hearing on Nov. 30, at which prosecutors will ask a judge to keep him locked up for at least another 60 days as an immediate menace to society.
