A Norwalk man was charged with driving under the influence for the second time in six years, according to a Norwalk Police Department report.

Wilber M. Barber, 38, of 103 N. Prospect St., was arrested just after 1:30 a.m. Sunday in connection with driving under the influence at the intersection of Whittlesey and League streets.

Since this would be his second offense within six years, the vehicle, a 2001 Ford F150, was seized as was its license plates.

He also was served a summons in connection with possessing an opened container of alcohol in a motor vehicle. He was later released to a sober person.

I understand 1 DUI is to many. But for the headline to say "2nd in 6 years" a little over dramatic don't you think NR. Maybe if it was 2nd in 6 hours or 6 days maybe even 6 weeks. But 6 years! Just keep shooting for those readers. LOL

Yeah who do they think they're reporting facts like some sort of newspaper? I love how you said "1 DUI is to many" but then bashed the Reflector because it's obviously their fault.
