Dawson mayor, second DUI

October 21, 2002

Terrell County - Dawson's controversial mayor is in trouble again. Robert Albritten was charged with DUI over the weekend after he crashed into the back of a car.

It's not the first time he's been caught driving under the influence. Albritten was charged with DUI in Terrell County in 1993.

Early Sunday morning he blew .16 on the breathalyzer, that's twice the legal limit. Police say he crashed into the back of a car on Crawford Street around one in the morning. They released him to his wife and he was summoned to appear in court December 2nd.

Albritten is also still awaiting trial on 28 counts of insurance fraud and forgery.

He's up for election in two weeks.
