(Benton, Ark.) A lawyer appealing his second drunken driving conviction was jailed Monday after he came to court intoxicated, officials said.

A Saline County Circuit Court judge ordered Jerry Stewart, 59, jailed for contempt of court.

He was ordered held without bail until Thursday, when he is scheduled in court for an unrelated case. It was not known whether Thursday's court appearance involved two pending drunken driving charges.

Stewart faces a total of six years in prison and could be disbarred if convicted of a fourth felony offence, prosecutor Robert Herzfeld said.
