A man once accused of vehicular homicide is back in prison for apparently drunk driving.

Misaen Mizawa is charged with driving while impaired.

Court documents state police spotted the car traveling in the Dededo area early Friday morning. The driver was going at a speed under 10 miles per hour and straddled the center lane dividers before turning into an empty parking lot. Police then noticed the suspect had slurred speech, bloodshot watery eyes, and smelled of alcohol. The suspect later admitted he was drunk and that he had 12 beers.

In 2009, Mizawa faced charges of vehicular homicide and negligent homicide after a crash on Route 16 that resulted in the death of 40 year old Iakop Elias.
