SALEM -- A Portland man with three DUII convictions was arrested again Wednesday, this time accused of crashing into another vehicle while impaired and then fleeing the scene.

KGW cameras were rolling when deputies arrested Jose Rosales-Reyes at a home in Southeast Portland.

His arrest came one day after Governor John Kitzhaber signed House Bill 4017 into law, endorsed by Mothers Against Drunk Driving. The law requires an ignition interlock device for cars used by the most dangerous DUII offenders. The device must remain on the vehicles for five years.

In court Thursday, Rosales-Reyes pleaded not guilty to six charges, including felony DUII, hit-and-run, reckless driving and malicious mischief.

One drunk driving conviction is too many, two, three - it's inexcusable, said Kathy Stromvig, with MADD.
