Police records show it was French’s first OVI since 2008 but his string of 11 other arrests for the offense started with an arrest in 1978.
In 1979 he was arrested for OVI and then twice in 1982, once in 1983, 1984, 1985, 1991, twice in 2002 and in 2004.
OSHP officials said the incident is a reminder that the coming Super Bowl football game weekend - with all its many parties - is a good time to remember the importance of driving sober.
“With Super Bowl Weekend upon us, motorists are reminded to plan ahead while out enjoying the big game. Utilize ride share services such as Uber and Lyft. Do not get behind the wheel if you have done too many cheers while cheering on your team,” said officials.
“Troopers along with local law enforcement officers will be highly visible to ensure safe travels for all fans this weekend. Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.”
