Jury convicts suspect of 11th DUI

DALTON, Georgia (WDEF) – A Whitfield County jury on Tuesday convicted a man for his 11th DUI offense.

55 year old Lawrence Eugene McFalls, Jr. was sentenced to two years in jail.

It was also his 7th time being convicted of driving with a suspended license.

The case goes back two years, when McFalls was arrested in Tunnel Hill while driving in a restricted area near an historical site.

Police say he was too drunk to even finish a field sobriety test.

He admitted at the time that he had too much to drink and his license was already suspended at that point.

McFalls had DUI’s in 2014, 2007, 2004, 1999 (2), 1996, 1988, 1986 and 1984, mostly in Whitfield and Murray Counties.
