Daniel Allen Bettcher, 56, whose aliases include Danny Lee Bettcher and Daniel Boettcher, was arrested in Otter Tail County Friday night.

When Bettcher was booked into jail, his address was listed as Wadena, a jail official said Monday.

In January 2004, Bettcher was sentenced to 4½ years in prison for first-degree DWI, his first felony DWI conviction.

He was placed on supervised release in October 2006. In June 2007, he was sent back to prison for a minimum of one year for violating conditions of his release by consuming alcohol and entering a business that sells alcohol.

Court records indicate Bettcher has 26 DWI-related convictions. Bettcher disputed that record, stating he has sometimes been convicted of multiple charges for a single incident. At the time, he estimated his DWI record at about 15.
