DUI Endangerment – Butte Man Faces Seventh DUI
BUTTE, Mont. (AP) — A 37-year-old Butte man faces his seventh DUI charge after his wife called 911 to report he was driving erratically on Interstate 90 with her and their three children in the SUV.
Butte-Silver Bow County officials say George Fode was driving from Butte to Anaconda Friday evening when he and his wife began arguing. She reported he began swerving and driving up to 90 mph.
The Montana Standard reports Fode exited the highway and headed back toward Butte on the frontage road. At one point, his wife and two children were able to get out of the SUV. Officers say the woman could not get their youngest child out of a car seat before he drove off.
Officers arrested Fode at his house. He also faces four counts of felony criminal endangerment.
