Petaluma police arrested a driver this week on suspicion of committing his third DUI since 2009, Lt. Tim Lyons said. Traffic officers recognized 30-year-old Daniel Chandler of Petaluma driving south on South McDowell Boulevard at Baywood Drive around 6:45 p.m. Monday.
Chandler’s license was suspended from two previous DUI convictions in Olympia, Wash. in November 2009 and in Marin County in June, Lyons said. He was on a list of habitual DUI offenders Petaluma police officers have been monitoring, Lyons said. Chandler is on probation for the Marin County DUI conviction, Lyons said.
When he was stopped Monday, officers determined he had been drinking alcohol and arrested him for DUI with two prior convictions and driving on a suspended license for DUI, Lyons said. He was booked into the Sonoma County jail under $30,000 bail and his car was impounded for 30 days, Lyons said.
