A 52-year-old man with 21 arrests for drunk driving is heading to prison.
Paul G. Barber Jr. was sentenced Wednesday in Rock County for his 10th offense in the county. Prosecutors say Barber has been arrested 11 other times dating back to 1982, but convictions occurring prior to 1989 are not counted under Wisconsin state law.
Barber will spend six years in prison and will be on extended supervision for five years following his release.
Barber's most recent arrest was on May 25, 2012, when a Wisconsin State Trooper found him sitting drunk in a smashed up vehicle on the shoulder of I39/I90 in Wisconsin. Barber's blood alcohol level at the time was .296.
Prosecutors went after the maximum sentence of 7.5 years in prison, but the judge gave Barber six.
