A Milan man reportedly made two trips to jail this weekend. The Highway Patrol reports William Z. Morris, 47, was first taken into custody Sunday morning in Linn County on charges of felony driving while intoxicated, driving while revoked, careless and imprudent driving, and failing to register. He was taken to the sheriff’s office and was released.
Less than seven hours later, Morris was arrested by troopers in Sullivan County. He is accused in that county of felony driving while intoxicated, failing to drive on the right half of the roadway, no seat belt, no insurance, failing to register, and driving while revoked. Morris was placed on a 24-hour hold in the Sullivan County Jail.
Morris’ criminal record includes charges of assault on a law enforcement officer and resisting arrest. He admitted to those allegations in Feb. 2011. He was ordered to serve a 10-day jail sentence.
Formal charges related to Sunday’s arrests had not been filed at the time of this report.
