WESTLAKE, Ohio — Police arrested a man not once, but twice for an OVI and other violations in a span of three hours Sunday.

Westlake police initially stopped Adam McDaniels at approximately 2:37 p.m. after receiving an emergency call saying a motorist was possibly driving under the influence.

When officers caught up with his vehicle on Columbia Road north of Hilliard Boulevard, they gave McDaniels three field sobriety tests and a breath test, which registered .144–several times the legal limit of .08. He was then arrested for an OVI.

Hours later at 5:24 p.m., McDaniels was stopped again for speeding, failing to signal and negotiating an improper turn on Hilliard Boulevard. Officers administered another breath test and charged him with another OVI.

McDaniels vehicle was impounded following the second traffic stop.

McDaniels was also charged with drug paraphernalia possession, marijuana possession, driving in marked lanes and having expired plates during the first stop. In the second stop, he was also charged with driving with a suspended license.
