BOZEMAN — A Big Sky man was arrested for driving under the influence after Gallatin County deputies say he drove drunk to bail his wife out of jail for her DUI arrest hours earlier.

Rick Fancher, 62, was arrested early Friday and charged with this third DUI.

Prosecutors say jail staff reported Fancher left the jail at 3:30 a.m. after trying to post bond for 44-year-old Stacey Jo Fancher. She had been arrested for aggravated DUI with a blood alcohol level of 0.201.

A deputy stopped Rick Fancher's pickup near the jail. Court records say his blood alcohol level was 0.159.

Both Fancher and his wife posted bond 9 a.m. on Friday. It was not immediately clear when they would appear in court.
