A man with six DUI convictions made an initial court appearance Monday on a seventh charge of driving under the influence.

According to prosecutors, 55-year-old Carl Len Millard was driving drunk on Highway 312 around 5 p.m. Sunday when a Montana Highway Patrol trooper pulled him over.

A witness following Millard said that at one point Millard got out of his pickup holding a beer bottle.

Millard showed signs of being drunk and performed poorly on sobriety tests, court records say.

A preliminary breath test showed that Millard had a blood alcohol concentration of .20 percent, charging documents say. A later test at the county jail registered a blood alcohol concentration of .182 percent, more than double the legal driving limit.

According to prosecutors, Millard has six prior DUI convictions dating back to 1983 and most recently in 1998.

Justice Court Judge David A. Carter set Millard’s bond at $7,500 and ordered him not to drink alcohol and to comply with 24/7 sobriety monitoring.

Millard is scheduled to enter a plea to the charge Aug. 5 in District Court.
