LCSO: Repeat Drunken Driver Hits 3 Cars Before Arrest

A 25-year-old Sterling man is behind bars after he crashed into three parked cars on North Lincoln Avenue early Wednesday morning.

The Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office identified the suspect as Hugo Maldonado-Arellano. Deputy R.M. Christman charged him with DUI and driving on suspended license. If convicted, it would be Maldonado-Arellano’s third DUI since 2013; that’s a felony violation that carries a minimum sentence of six months in jail and a fine of at least $1,000.

He is being held without bond at the Loudoun County Adult Detention Center and faces an Aug. 3 trial date in Loudoun County District Court.

    Alcohol is far from the harmless thing people pretend it is. Apart from untimely and horrific death in collisions alcohol is a leading cause of preventable death, ranking behind only tobacco—the cause of one of every five deaths—medical errors, and obesity/overweight.

    Of every ten of us one is drinking AT LEAST the equivalent of ten cans of beer—that’s just two short of two six-packs—or two bottles of wine EVERY DAY. Of all of the alcohol you see in the stacks of beer and the shelved bottles of wine these persons are drinking THREE FOURTHS of it.

    Like the tobacco industry the alcohol industry depends on addiction.
