Man Previously Deported Faces DUI Charge

A man police say had been previously deported has been charged with drunken driving for the sixth time.

Boxborough police say 48-year-old Eduardo Alementa Torres failed field sobriety tests when he was pulled over on Saturday night. Police say he had no identification and gave officers a false name.

When officers ran his fingerprints through an automated identification system, they found he had three prior drunken driving convictions in California and two in Massachusetts.

Police say he is a native of Mexico who had been deported.

Torres is scheduled to be arraigned Monday in Ayer District Court. It was not clear if he had a lawyer.

In August, a man from Ecuador allegedly in the U.S. illegally was accused of being drunk when he struck and killed a Milford motorcyclist.
