A man involved in a car crash last week has been arrested on suspicion of a fifth drunken driving offense.

49-year-old Richard Jacobs, of Lincoln, was arrested after the
crash Thursday near Beatrice.

Investigators say Jacobs failed to yield to another driver on state Highway 41, causing a crash that injured the other driver.

Officials say a preliminary test indicated that Jacobs' blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal driving limit.

He was arrested on suspicion of drunken driving and of driving even though his license had been suspended for 15 years.

Jacobs remained in the Gage County Jail on Sunday and could not
be reached for comment.
