Reno Man With 7 Priors Dodges 8th!

Police Arrest Man with Seven Priors

March 27, 1998

RENO, Nev. (AP) – A Reno man police say has seven drunken driving
arrests has dodged No. 8, but still faces a raft of other charges.

Joseph Donald Clichi, 48, was being watched by officers under funding
provided by the repeat DUI offender grant.

He left his house for work Friday morning, stopping on the way to pick
up a six-pack. By the time police could pull him over, officers say he
was pretty well finished with his first beer of the day.

A preliminary breath test put his blood alcohol at 0.05 percent, half
the 0.1 percent at which a person is presumed to be under the influence
in Nevada.

But he faces charges of driving on a revoked license, possession of an
open container, possession of marijuana and possession of paraphernalia.
He was being held under $2,570 bail.

Police say he was arrested for DUI twice in the 1970s, three times in
the ’80s and twice in the 1990s.
