Columbus police say that they arrested a drunk driver after he went through a stop light late Tuesday night.

An officer saw the car drive through the light at 25th Street and Central Avenue at just before midnight Tuesday.

The driver, 46-year-old William Lane of Columbus was pulled over shortly afterwards and police say that he had a strong scent of alcohol on his breath. He failed several field sobriety tests and a breath sample showed a blood alcohol content of .143 percent.

He was convicted of DUI in August and is now facing charges of operating a vehicle while intoxicated with a prior conviction.
