A city man is facing two separate drunken driving charges following traffic stops on Sunday.
Richard Guerra, 38, of 60 Division St., was pulled over after pulling up behind police engaged in an unrelated traffic stop and blaring his stereo at about 3:40 a.m. Sunday morning, according to the Amsterdam Police Department.
Police in a release said Guerra had his high-beams on and when police went to confront him he drove away.
An officer pulled over Guerra on Division Street and allegedly found open containers of alcohol in his car. Guerra then failed field sobriety tests, police said.
After being processed on DWI and other charges and being released to a family member, police allege they encountered Guerra again.
One of the same officers involved in the earlier arrest, Anthony Priamo, pulled over a gray Honda that allegedly crossed the center of the road several times on Market Street, and it was Guerra driving that car, according to police.
Guerra was administered field sobriety tests again and failed.
He faces two counts of aggravated DWI, two counts of misdemeanor DWI, two counts of driving with a blood-alcohol content of .08 percent or more, open container and other traffic violations.
Guerra was sent to the Montgomery County Jail to await a court hearing.
