David Lakarnafeaux from San Diego has been arrested for suspected drunken driving three times in the last five days, deputies said Sunday.

Sheriff’s deputies were called to a report of a drunken driver on Seacoast Drive in Imperial Beach about 6:30 a.m. Sunday.

When they arrived they found that Lakarnafeaux, 44, had walked inside a bar on Palm Avenue and Seacoast Drive in Imperial Beach, Sgt. Ted Greenwald said.

When deputies arrested him, they discovered that Lakarnafeaux had already been arrested for the same charge twice last week: on Tuesday by San Diego police and on Thursday by the California Highway Patrol, Greenwald said.

Lakarnafeaux was booked into San Diego Central Jail, where he was held in lieu of $100,000 bail. He was scheduled to be arraigned at 9 a.m. Wednesday in the El Cajon courthouse, according to jail records.

A Chicago man has been arrested for the 65th time since 2001 — this time for allegedly assaulting a woman and her children.

The Cook County Sheriff’s Office said Francisco Tirado, 27, attacked the woman and children over the course of a week.

On Sept. 22, Tirado arrived home intoxicated and proceeded to pee on the bathroom floor, police said.

When the woman confronted him, he allegedly punched her and hit her head against the toilet several times while also kicking her.

On Sept. 23, on a visit to the home of one of his family members, Tirado allegedly chocked the woman until she lost consciousness, but stopped when someone approached him. He then ordered the woman to drive to his house. She tried to stop at a Chicago police station, but Tirado held a knife to her throat while also holding his hand across the neck of her five-week-old child, police said.

He allegedly spit in the face of that child, as well as the woman’s 16-month-old child, and threatened to kill them both, police said.

At home, it’s alleged Tirado broke her phone and kept her in the house until early on the morning of Sept. 29. That’s when, police say, Tirado fell asleep and the woman was able to get out of the house with her children.

Police arrested Tirado on Saturday.

Police said records show over the past 10 years, Tirado has been arrested on charges ranging from aggravated assault with a weapon and robbery to reckless conduct and domestic battery causing bodily harm.
