Man pulls DUI Trifecta–3DUIs, 3 Cities in 3 Days

It doesn’t happen very often that we get the trifecta all in one story, but today Timothy McGowan pulls the triple triple.

He needs to hook up with Lindsey Lohan.

Marin man's DUI hat trick -- 3 arrests in 3 days

Timothy James McGowan of Mill Valley picked up three DUIs in three days in three cities, authorities say.

On May 18, McGowan, 50, tried to enter a closed bank and drove off while drunk in San Rafael, police say.

On May 19, he was arrested for drunken driving in San Francisco.

On May 20, he got busted in Novato after he was spotted staggering near his Volkswagen Beetle, asking a woman for a ride to Burger King and then getting into his car and making a wide right turn in front of police, authorities say.

A blood test showed that his blood-alcohol level in the Novato incident was more than 0.15 percent, nearly twice the legal limit of 0.08 percent, said Deputy District Attorney Kevin O'Hara.

On Friday, McGowan pleaded not guilty in the Marin County cases. He is being held in lieu of $50,000 bail. If convicted, McGowan could face two years in jail.

McGowan has previous convictions for DUI, petty theft, resisting arrest and drug possession. He was also arrested four times on suspicion of public intoxication in Mill Valley from January to April.
