Authorities charged two local men with drunk driving for the third time over the weekend.

William Northamer, 33, Coralville, and Dejuan Rance, 39, North Liberty were charged with third-offense OWI in separate incidents on Oct. 10.

According to police reports, officers arrested Northamer around 6:30 p.m. after he was involved in a car accident. Northamer smelled of alcohol, had bloodshot eyes, and was slurring his speech, according to police. He had a blood-alcohol concentration of .242.

Police said officers charged Rance at about 3 a.m. after he allegedly drove his car into a garage and fled.

Police said they found him in his home, where they noticed he had bloodshot eyes, slurred speech and smelled of alcohol. He was also charged with interfering with official acts after he intentionally urinated in his pants and refused to walk back to the patrol car, according to police.

Third-offense OWI is a Class D felony, generally punishable by up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $9,375.
