Man facing 3rd DWI charge in less than a week

KEANSBURG - (AP) - For the third time in less than a week, a central New Jersey man is facing drunken driving charges.
    
Keansburg police tell the Asbury Park Press that 46-year-old borough resident Jean Attis was arrested Saturday afternoon after he allegedly led officers on a chase that briefly went through a neighboring town. The pursuit ended when he crashed into a fire hydrant in Keansburg.
    
Officers pursued Attis because they knew his license had been revoked. They also knew he had been arrested twice in a 17-hour period earlier in the week on drunken driving charges.
    
Besides the DWI count, Attis also faces charges of eluding and numerous motor vehicle citations. He was being held on $20,000 cash bail.
    
It was not known Sunday if Attis had retained a lawyer.
