(WDAY TV) - A Ponsford, Minnesota man will spend 6-and-a-half years behind bars for his 12th D-W-I conviction.

48-year-old William Butcher was arrested New Year's Eve in Park Rapids on Highway 34.

Police say he was urinating on the side of the road and didn't have a valid driver's license.

In May, a jury convicted him on the D-W-I charge. It's Butcher's 12th DWI conviction since 1980.
