AUBURN – A Fletcher Road man was free on bail this week after being arrested for the 14th time on a charge of operating under the influence of alcohol.

Mark McNally, 46, was freed from the Androscoggin County Jail at about 5:15 a.m. Sunday, a little more than 12 hours after he was arrested by Maine State Police.

McNally was arrested Saturday night as he drove along Route 202 in Greene. Police said he was intoxicated when they stopped him. They also said it was the 14th time McNally had been charged with drunken driving and the fifth time in the past 8 years.

When he was arrested the night of May 23, McNally was also charged with driving with a suspended license.

In February, McNally was found guilty of driving drunk in April 2008. He was sentenced to 18 months in jail and served 30 days. He was fined $1,100 and put on two years of probation. His license was suspended for four years.

By the time McNally was arrested last week, he was not eligible to have a license again until 2012. He was also on probation with conditions to refrain from drinking, but as of Friday, he had not been charged with violating that probation.

Listed as a habitual offender, McNally is scheduled to appear in court July 30 on the latest arrest. After he was released from jail, he was ordered not to drink or possess alcohol and to submit to random checks by police and probation officials.

McNally did not return a message left at his home Friday night.
