Mentor Woman Faces Fifth Drunken Driving Conviction

Mary Burrington was pulled over and arrested by Mentor Police Friday

A Mentor woman, who has already been convicted of drunken driving four times, was arrested on suspicion of doing it again Friday night by Mentor Police.

An officer saw Mary Burrington, 46, drive over the median late Friday night on Bellflower road and pulled her over, Mentor Police Lt. Ken Zbiegien said.

Burrington "could hardly stand," according to Zbiegien, and refused to take a breathalyzer test.

Burrington faces a felony charge of operating a vehicle while intoxicated because of her prior convictions. Her most recent conviction was in 1998.

Acting Judge Jeff McGaffick arraigned Burrington Monday in Mentor Municipal Court. He set her bond at $20,000, which was posted.

Her next court hearing is scheduled for Nov. 26.

And may I ask, will they send her to jail this time, or give her another chance to kill someone? As long as people like her (drunks) are allowed to remain free, they WILL keep on driving.....until they kill.
