WELCH - A Canebrake man is arrested twice in the same night for driving under the influence with drugs.

McDowell County Sheriff Martin West said a deputy pulled over Harry Glen Perdue for a traffic stop in the Welch area Friday around 4:05 p.m. Friday. The deputy found Perdue was driving intoxicated with drugs and found a small amount of marijuana.

Perdue was arrested and arraigned in front of Magistrate Daniel Mitchell and placed on a $500 bond, according to West. Perdue paid $50 to the court and was released, but he drove again and was pulled over once more around 4:45 that same evening.

After being arrested the second time, Perdue was arraigned before Magistrate Steve Cox and his bond was set at $1,500, according to West.
