Man Facing Felony DUI Gets 2 More Within 12 Hours

By Beacon Staff

GREAT FALLS – Cascade County officials say a 67-year-old man who had been released on bond while facing a felony drunken driving charge was cited with two more felony DUI’s within a 12-hour period earlier this week.

KFBB-TV reports William Breuer is now jailed with his bail set at $70,000.

Court records say on Tuesday, a Montana Highway Patrol trooper picked up Breuer after finding him passed out and slumped over the wheel of his car. Troopers were concerned about his level of intoxication and the possibility of hypothermia, so they took him to the emergency room.

When Breuer was released from the hospital the next day, he recovered his vehicle. Court records say it appears Breuer passed out in his car and slid into a ditch, where another trooper found him Wednesday.
