MASON CITY – A Clear Lake man was busted twice this summer for drunk driving, leading to a felony third offense drunk driving charge, but he was able to work a plea deal to avoid a harsher sentence.

David Wayne Foote, age 54, was stopped by the Iowa State Patrol on June 14th for drunk driving and open container.   He was charged with operating while intoxicated, second offense.  He was stopped again on July 3, this time by a Cerro Gordo deputy, for drunk driving.  He was charged with operating while intoxicated, third offense.

Earlier in November, Foote was able to reach a plea deal. He pled guilty to two counts of second offense operating while intoxicated and one count of first degree harassment. A charge of threat of terrorism was thrown out. He was ordered to jail for 30 days total, with prison sentences suspended. A judge also ordered Foote to pay $2,681.25 and $4,041.25, respectively, on the two drunk driving guilty pleas. He will also serve 2 years of probation.

Foote pled guilty to 2nd offense operating while intoxicated in 2007. He was also stopped by the Iowa State Patrol in Cerro Gordo county in that case. He was found guilty of operating while intoxicated, 1st offense, in 2000 after a stop by the Iowa State Patrol.
