Boise man charged with second felony DUI

July 9, 2013 

— A Boise man who spent five years in prison after a felony DUI in 2005 is facing another felony DUI charge after he was pulled over Monday night.

Steven Earl Allen, 50, was stopped near the intersection of State Street and 31st Street by a patrol officer who allegedly saw the man make a wide right turn, then swerve out of the lane and across the center divider.

Allen appeared intoxicated when the officer approached him, police said. He was arrested after failing several field sobriety tests.

A blood sample taken at the Ada County Jail will be tested to determine the driver’s blood alcohol level.

Allen was also charged with driving with a suspended license, a misdemeanor.

Allen pleaded guilty to felony DUI in November 2005, and was sentenced in early 2006. He was released from prison in January 2011.
