COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (CBS4)– A new state law in Colorado could keep a man who is facing his ninth DUI conviction off the streets.

Police in Colorado Springs arrested William Nance on Monday after officers said he struck a car.

An officer said he found two open cans of beer in his car.

Nance has eight previous DUI convictions.

Under a new state law in Colorado, drivers with four of more DUIs could spend up to six years in prison and pay a fine as high as $500,000.

Previously, drunk drivers were released after spending time in detox, and in some cases were able to get behind the wheel hours after their arrest.
