COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) - Colorado Springs police say they arrested a 53-year-old man suspected of his ninth DUI offense.

The Colorado Springs Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1MccwGY ) that police arrested William Nance Monday night after he was involved in a crash. Given his prior DUI offenses, Nance’s latest arrest qualifies for a possible felony charge under a state law that took effect last month. That law makes a fourth DUI a felony that can be punishable by up to six year in prison.

Prior to the new law, DUIs in Colorado were treated as misdemeanors regardless of how many previous convictions a driver had.

Police say Nance is also being investigated for driving without a license and driving without insurance.
