    A 71-year-old New Jersey man was arrested twice in one day on charges of driving while intoxicated.

    Richard Haskell was first arrested Saturday morning when police in Ramsey found him sleeping in his parked car near a pond with a bottle on alcohol between his legs, according to NorthJersey.com. He was given a field sobriety test and failed.

    He was later released.

    That afternoon, police say Haskell drove to the police department to see if his car from the earlier arrest would be released. Officers performed another field sobriety test, and Haskell's blood-alcohol level was still over the legal limit.

    He was charged with a second DWI and given a court date.

    No attorney information is available. A voicemail comment from Haskell wasn't immediately returned Wednesday.
