A 55-year-old Santa Rosa man spent two nights at the Sonoma County Jail over the weekend after being arrested twice in less than 24 hours on suspicion of drunken driving.
Donald Flinn was picked up by Santa Rosa police on Friday night after running a stop sign, police said. He was booked on suspicion of driving under the influence and cruelty to a child, then released Saturday morning after posting $30,000 bail, jail processor Chris Amador said.
He was back at the jail Saturday night after he was brought in again on suspicion of drunken driving.
Flinn drove around a car that had stopped to let an oncoming vehicle pass on a one-way road at the entrance to South Goat Rock. He found himself, facing head-on, the vehicle of State Parks Supervising Ranger Jeremy Stinson.
“We did an alcohol screening test that showed he was over the limit,” Stinson said.
Flinn also spent Saturday night at the jail and was released Sunday morning after posting $10,000 bail.
