FARMINGTON, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say a 30-year-old Farmington man has been arrested for DUI for the 16th time.

Farmington police say Laurence Pine is being held on a $200,000 bond on suspicion of DUI, two counts of child abuse, failure to maintain traffic lanes, driving with a revoked license and possession of drug paraphernalia.

It was unclear Monday if he had a lawyer.

Pine was arrested Dec. 31 after officers were dispatched to Hastings about a possible domestic violence situation.

They say Pine had left the scene, was allegedly under the influence of alcohol and had two young children in the vehicle.

Officers later located the car at a gasoline station and say the two children - ages 8 and 11 - were inside.

A warrant was obtained to determine Pine’s blood-alcohol level.
