RENO, Nev. (AP) -- A 50-year-old Reno man has been arrested on suspicion of drunken driving for the third time in less than three weeks. Reno Police Sgt. Tom Robinson said the man was stopped Monday afternoon on a U.S. Highway 395 off-ramp on the south end of town after a concerned citizen alerted police about his erratic driving. He said a check of the man's police record found he had been arrested on the same charge two other times since Oct. 2.

Robinson said officers contacted the city attorney, who contacted a Reno municipal court judge so the man's bail would be raised to $25,000. The judge also ordered that it be paid in cash rather than the usual practice of posting a bond for 10 percent of the total pending a court hearing.
