Man in Court on 7th OWI

2/10/12 – A Watertown man waived his right to a preliminary hearing Thursday on charges of seventh offense drunk driving. 50-year-old William Gordon was pulled over on January 5th in the town of Lebanon after a police officer operating a radar gun recognized Gordon and his vehicle. Authorities say Gordon admitted to drinking for about an hour prior to driving and he reportedly had an open beer in the vehicle. Gordon is charged with felony operating a motor vehicle while intoxicated and driving on a revoked license. His previous six convictions range in date from 1993 to 2008. The charges carry a maximum of 11-years in prison, if he’s convicted. An arraignment hearing is on the calendar next month.
