Montana Man Faces Seventh DUI Charge After Crash

January 28, 2013

A 48-year-old Billings, Mont., man has been charged with a seventh driving under the influence.

The Billings Gazette reports in a story published Friday that Robert Luis Cedeno pleaded not guilty to felony DUI and misdemeanor charges of driving without insurance, driving without a valid license and fleeing from officers.

After a prosecutor said Cedeno had five previous DUI convictions in New York between 1990 and 1995, and another in Wyoming in 2005, bond was set at $20,000.

Police say that on Jan. 11 an officer witnessed Cedeno crash into a tree near City Hall, but drive away when the officer approached.

He was eventually pulled over but refused all sobriety tests. A blood sample was taken after a search warrant was obtained.
