Michigan man arrested 14th time for DUI

In other DUI news, Fox 2 reports that a Mount Clemens man, 54 year-old Zenon Bialokur, has been arrested for his 14th DUI.

According to reports, Michigan police pulled him over on Market Street in Mount Clemens on Friday evening after he ran a red light. After a short investigation police determined he was drunk and arrested and jailed him.

Zenon Bialokur faces his 14th DUI arrest. He has been convicted of operating a vehicle while intoxicated 13 times since 1998. He has been convicted 10 times of operating his car with a suspended license, and he has had his license suspended 12 times.
