Michael E. Lena, seems like a true menace in our community. He was arrested for a THIRD OUI offense? Plus he had a revoked license AND he was texting while operating a motor vehicle? How many more offenses until this guy goes to jail where he belongs? Does he have to kill someone first? It's obvious that he doesn't take driving seriously. Three OUI offenses and texting while driving while impaired. A true menace.
