OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (AP) -- A 50-year-old Missouri man with at least 14 prior drunken driving convictions is facing a new DUI charge after a traffic accident and altercation in Johnson County, Kan.
The Kansas City Star (http://bit.ly/JTUqYR ) reports that John Charles Howard, of Branson, was arrested this week by Overland Park police on a report that he wrecked his car and threatened another man with a knife.
Besides DUI, the Johnson County charges include fleeing from a law enforcement officer and driving with a suspended license.
Court records show Howard formerly lived in the Kansas City area and has DUI convictions in both Kansas and Missouri.
There was no phone listing for Howard in Branson, and he had not been assigned a Johnson County public defender by Wednesday.
