By Beacon Staff

MISSOULA – Missoula police say a 24-year-old man was arrested twice for drunken driving in the span of five hours.

Police say Frank Rees was arrested at about 2:30 a.m. Saturday on suspicion of drunken driving and posted a $500 bond just before 5:30 a.m. About two hours later, Rees was again arrested on suspicion of drunken driving, this time after police reported he hit a parked car.

Rees gave a breath sample the first time he was arrested and a blood sample the second as he was taken to the hospital for treatment of injuries suffered in the crash.

He pleaded not guilty to both misdemeanor charges in Missoula City Court on Monday and was not listed on the Missoula County jail roster.
