Arlington Man’s 8th DWI Gets Him Long Sentence – Finally

His 8th DWI conviction???

Michael Smth, a 54 year old resident of Arlington, was convicted Friday and sentenced to 55 years in jail on Friday.

Hopefully this will keep him off our streets. For the rest of his life.

Smith was pulled over in Arlington in January when he was spotted weaving in traffic. A beer can fell out of his car when he was asked to exit his car.

His blood alcohol content was a staggering .24% — three times the legal limit.

Tarrant County jurors were told that Smith had 12 prior convinctions, including the 7 for drunken driving.

His longest jail sentence to date has been 3 years.

Think there’s something wrong with our system of dealing with DWIs?
