A man who showed up in court drunk to be sentenced for drunken driving told the judge he routinely drinks 12 beers a day "and then some."

Carbon County President Judge Roger Nanovic sentenced 25-year-old Joshua Beury Tuesday to 30 days to six months in prison for contempt of court and the second-offense DUI charge.

Beury received a similar sentence on Monday for charges related to a Nov. 6 crash after which his blood-alcohol level registered 0.17, about twice the legal limit.

Beury told Nanovic he'd had two beers the night before the hearing, when his blood alcohol registered .20. He said he was on medication for bipolar disorder and other mental health issues.
