A 51-year-old Redding man who was arrested Wednesday for a blood-alcohol level four times over the legal driving limit, was arrested again Friday evening for driving under the influence, police said.
Redding Police said someone reported around 8 p.m. Sean D. Vinson was “extremely intoxicated” and was seen getting out of the driver’s seat of a 2000 Ford Expedition at the Chevron gas station on Tarmac Road.
After the police received the description of the vehicle, license plate and driver, the Redding Police DUI officer headed to there and found Vinson as he was driving out of the parking lot. The officer made a traffic stop, but Vinson kept driving toward his home.
The police recognized him as the man they’d arrested two days prior, and witnesses at the scene at that time had taken away Vinson’s keys. That day, officers said they also found loaded firearms and an open container of alcohol in the pickup.
This time around, police said Vinson showed signs of alcohol influence and conducted a DUI investigation.
Vinson is on court probation for a prior DUI conviction and is required to have an ignition interlock device installed in any vehicle he owns or drives. Police said the device has not been installed in his vehicle.
Vinson was booked into the Shasta County jail for driving under the influence of alcohol, driving with a blood alcohol concentration over a .08 percent, driving without a court-ordered ignition interlock device, failure to yield to a police officer and a violation of his court probation
