Appeals court upholds Reeverts' 12th OWI


In a decision released Tuesday, the District III Court of Appeals affirmed a Pierce County man's 12th drunken driving conviction.

In his appeal, Ronald Scott Reeverts, 46, Beldenville, claimed the deputy did not have grounds to stop him on the road, and he was unreasonably detained and illegally arrested.

Reeverts was convicted of 12th-offense driving with a prohibited alcohol content as a result of incidents occurring July 17, 2010.
