(KMOV.com) -- Police charged a St. Charles man as a persistent offender after he was arrested for DWI Tuesday night. Bart Laster reportedly crashed his vehicle on the Blanchette Bridge last Tuesday and then fled the scene.
When Laster was captured he was over the legal limit.
It was not the first time Laster was arrested for driving under the influence. He was convicted in 2011, 2007 and twice in 2004 for the same offense.
