FLORISSANT, Mo. (KSDK) - A north St. Louis County man is in jail on a $100,000 bond after he was arrested for his 10th drunk driving charge and for driving with a revoked license.

Florissant police say an officer stopped 53-year-old Joseph Hayes of Florissant Monday morning at the intersection of Waterford Drive and Colt Circle for speeding. The officer suspected Hayes was intoxicated.

Authorities said the arrest was Hayes' 10th for drunk driving. His first conviction for DWI was in 1984 and his most recent was in September 2008.

Along with the nine drunk driving convictions, Hayes has also been convicted 10 times for driving while his license was suspended or revoked.

"You get sick of seeing the same people over and over again obviously this person, he doesn't care," says Officer Andy Haarman with Florissant Police. "These people are killers too and we need to take an aggressive stance on them."

Prosecutors have charged Hayes with felony drunk driving, being a chronic offender and driving while suspended or revoked.
