A 51-year-old Montana man with six drunken driving convictions has been charged again after testing nearly four times the legal limit for alcohol.

Earl Leo Rock pleaded not guilty to felony drunken driving Monday before District Judge G. Todd Baugh. Rock also was charged with felony criminal endangerment, driving with a suspended license and having an open alcohol container in a vehicle.

Deputy Yellowstone County Attorney Ingrid Rosenquist said Rock had drunken driving convictions in 1991, 1995, 1996, 1997 and two in 2001. In the most recent case, Rock is accused of driving with a blood-alcohol level of 0.306 percent. He was arrested Dec. 16.
