STEVENS POINT, Wis. (AP) -- A Stevens Point man has been sentenced to five years in prison for his 10th drunken driving offense.

Thirty-eight-year-old Michael Vollrath will also serve five years of probation following his prison sentence. Portage County Circuit Court Judge Thomas Eagon also ordered Vollrath on Thursday not to drink alcohol for ten years.

Vollrath's latest conviction follows a February arrest when he was driving with a blood alcohol content more than three times the legal limit. Stevens Point Journal Media says Vollrath was first convicted of drunken driving in 1994.
