George Huguely's father convicted of DWI

George Huguely IV, whose namesake son was convicted of second-degree murder this winter for beating University of Virginia student Yeardley Love to death while in a drunken rage, pleaded guilty Tuesday to driving while impaired by alcohol, according to Montgomery County prosecutors.

Huguely IV, who lives in Potomac, was sentenced to probation in Rockville district court, spokesman Seth Zucker said in an email. It appears to be the elder Huguely’s first conviction for drunk driving, according to Maryland’s online court records.

His son, George Huguely V, was charged with being a minor in possession of alcohol in Florida in 2007, and he was also arrested in 2008 for public intoxication, shouting “I’ll kill all you bitches” at a female officer. The younger man told police he was drunk the night of May 2, 2010, when he went to Love’s off-campus apartment and got into an altercation with her. She was found dead the next morning.

Huguely IV was arrested in September near the intersection of Shady Grove and Piney Meetinghouse roads in North Potomac on charges of driving while under the influence of alcohol and failing to obey traffic controls.
