MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A man from Olive Branch, Mississippi has been convicted of drunk driving for the fourth time Friday morning.

Thirty-two-year-old Brandon McQueen Cox was fined 5,000 dollars and faces up to two years in prison when he is sentenced in August of this year.

After the jury’s verdict Thursday, Cox’s bond was revoked and was taken into custody. His license will also be revoked for eight years.

He was arrested in February after police found him at the wheel, parked near a building in the 6400 block of Holmes Road. Investigators say he smelled of alcohol, was unsteady on his feet, had slurred speech and had a bottle of Vodka in his car.

Cox was also on probation for a prior DUI, one of three prior convictions since March 2011.

During Cox’s trial, investigators say they found two plastic bags of urine in his car. They said Cox indicated he used them to pass drug screens at this place of employment.

Cox has been declared to be a habitual motor vehicle offender.
