An San Diego man has been arrested for suspected drunken driving three times in the last five days, deputies said Sunday.

Sheriff's deputies were called to a report of a drunken driver on Seacoast Drive in Imperial Beach about 6:30 a.m. Sunday.

When they arrived they found the driver, David Lakarnafeaux, 44, had walked inside a bar on Palm Avenue and Seacoast Drive in Imperial Beach, Sgt. Ted Greenwald said.

When deputies arrested him, they discovered that Lakarnafeaux had already been arrested for the same charge twice last week: on Tuesday by San Diego police and on Thursday by the California Highway Patrol, Greenwald said.

Lakarnafeaux was booked into San Diego Central Jail, where he was held in lieu of $100,000 bail. He was scheduled to be arraigned at 9 a.m.  Wednesday in the El Cajon courthouse, according to jail records.
