Flat Tires a Dead Giveaway for Man with 6th DUI

A 57-year-old man was arrested Tuesday morning for his sixth DUI in Nebraska. An officer reports seeing Richard Curzon driving while straddling the center line with four flat tires.

Curzon was also found with his car's air bag already deployed, which may explain the injuries on his face in his mug shot.

An officer reported seeing the man driving southbound near 84th & K about 11:30 p.m. Monday. The driver took off when officers tried to stop him.

A low speed chase ended near 96th and I. Officers had to use a Taser to take the man into custody.

Curzon was taken by squad to Bergan Mercy Hospital. A preliminary blood test revealed he had a Blood Alcohol Content of .253, more than three times the legal limit.

A check of his records shows Curzon has now been arrested six times for DUI in Nebraska. He has two convictions and four cases still pending.

Police also believe Curzon was involved in at least one hit and run accident, so he was booked for leaving the scene of a property damage accident.

Other charges he face include felony driving with a revoked license, felony flight to avoid arrest, willful reckless driving, bond review, having an open container and possession of drug paraphernalia.
