'Bering Sea Gold' Star

BUSTED FOR DUI

... Again

12/28/2013 12:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1224-Shawn-Pomrenke-discoveryA star on Discovery Channel's "Bering Sea Gold: Under the Ice" has been popped for DUI ... again ... after driving at breakneck speeds and blowing almost twice the legal limit ... TMZ has learned.

Shawn Pomrenke was busted in Nome, Alaska ... it happened last month but we just learned of it.

Shawn was barreling down the highway at 102 MPH ... switching lanes without signaling according to the police report.

And get this ... cops say he blew a .156.

Anchorage cops impounded Shawn's car because he had been previously ordered NOT to drive without an Ignition Interlock Device ... and guess what wasn't installed?

As for why he was required to have the device ... Shawn was busted for DUI a year ago, after hitting a pedestrian and fleeing. 

Shawn was sentenced to 180 days but served less than 2 weeks.  He was released last week.

Calls to Shawn were not returned.

Speeding and drunk? Yank his driving license and don't allow him to drive ever again. If he does, throw him in jail and dump the key.

Suspend him and kick him off the show. Far worse crime than being over opinionated and delusional.

I didn't realize that in the States you are allowed to drink and drive, and to continue to do so, disgusting!

Maybe he saw Russia in his rear-view mirror and was trying to get away.

Its heartbreaking only because last season when he had to turn himself in to serve time for the previous DUI the discovery channel thought it would be good to show him telling his little kids that he is going to jail. The kids started crying and it was heartbreaking. I guess discovery will show this one also. So disgusting.
