    BETHEL — A 34-year-old Williamstown man who has been convicted of driving with a suspended license 10 times in the last nine years was allegedly at it again this week.

    Vermont State Police say Kevin Joyal, who also has twice been convicted of drunken driving, was spotted driving a 2000 Subaru Outback south on Route 14 in East Bethel shortly before 4 p.m. Wednesday.

    Police, who were familiar with Joyal and his criminal history, took him into custody, processed him at the state police barracks in Royalton and released him on a citation to appear in Orange County criminal court in Chelsea. The date was not made public.

    Court officials say it won’t be the first time he’s been there. Six of Joyal’s license convictions can be traced to the Orange County courthouse, as can one of his drunken driving convictions.

    Joyal was charged with DUI and driving with a suspended license after an October 2009 accident on Pirie Road in Williamstown when police claimed his blood-alcohol content was more than three times the legal limit.

    According to court records, that license charge was dropped as part of a deal that involved him pleading guilty to drunken driving.

    According to court officials, Joyal was first charged with DUI after a May 2004 accident on Reservoir Road in Orange.

    They said the charge was amended to negligent operation.

    Joyal was driving with a criminally suspended license at the time.
