CUYAHOGA FALLS, Ohio (AP) — Authorities in northeast Ohio say a 70-year-old man has been sentenced to eight years in prison after being convicted of his 12th drunken-driving charge.

A judge in Summit County sentenced Edward South of Cuyahoga Falls on Thursday. The most recent conviction happened after South crashed into a pole on Dec. 26 and walked away from the scene. Police tracked him to a family member's home and apprehended him there.

He was convicted in May of two felonies for operating a vehicle under the influence of alcohol, along with a specification and an enhanced penalty for having five prior offenses in the past 20 years.

The Akron Beacon Journal (http://bit.ly/10snWKv ) reports South has racked up a dozen drunken-driving convictions in the past 25 years.
