Virginia police reportedly busted the same man two times for allegedly driving under the influence, with each arrest taking place approximately nine hours apart.
38-year-old Travis Baker is from Fredericksburg, Virginia.
On the evening of February 23, Baker was reportedly under the influence of intoxicants.
Just before midnight, Baker was reportedly driving in Stafford County when he allegedly crashed into another car on the road.
When deputies arrived at the scene, they accused Baker of driving under the influence.
Baker was placed under arrest, and when the authorities performed a pat-down, they allegedly found an undisclosed amount of drugs on his person.
He is expected to face charges for driving under the influence, possession of a controlled substance, and driving on a suspended license.
He was held on bail until just after 7:00 am.
Less than two hours after his release from jail, Baker was reportedly driving a truck on a road surrounded by woods. He lost control of the vehicle and crashed in the wooded area.
The Stafford Sheriff’s Office learned about the single-vehicle accident and reportedly discovered Baker sitting in his truck in the thicket.
When speaking with Baker, the deputy said the man seemed as if he was intoxicated, and he decided to give him a field sobriety test.
Baker was noted as performing poorly, and upon searching his truck, it was reported that plastic baggies, two scales, and an unidentified controlled substance were stashed inside.
Baker was taken into custody for suspicion of a DUI second offense, possession of a controlled substance, driving without a valid license, and reckless driving.
It was learned that Baker had been released from jail for his initial DUI arrest about an hour and a half before the second.
He is currently reported as being held without bail.
