ST. LOUIS (AP) — A St. Louis County man is facing drunk-driving charges — for the 11th time.

Florissant police on Monday stopped a vehicle for a traffic offense. Authorities say the driver, 53-year-old Joseph Arthur Hayes of Florissant, was arrested.

Prosecutors charged Hayes with driving while intoxicated as a chronic offender, and driving with a suspended or revoked license. He is jailed on $100,000 bond.

St. Louis County Police say Hayes had 10 prior convictions for driving while intoxicated and for driving while suspended or revoked.
