Two DUI Arrests in One Night

(Woodbridge, VA) According to Detective Dennis Mangan, Prince William Police arrested 29-year-old Reginald Williston Cook for driving under the influence twice in one night. Cook was first arrested at 2:10am, processed and released to the custody of a third party at 3:51am, and then arrested again at 4:20am by the same officer who arrested him the first time. Subsequently, Cook was held without bond and his car was impounded for 30 days.

Mr. Cook has been given the Abject Stupidity Award for today. Also, it seems the police should have confiscated his car keys when he was first arrested. Imagine the liability of the police if Cook had caused a fatal accident after being released. Lastly, it apparently is meaningless to release an offender to "the custody of a third party."
