Man Arrested 153rd Time Will Plead Guilty
A Portsmouth, New Hampshire man has been arrested for the 153rd time, this time after he was accused of punching someone in the face over the weekend.

Prosecutor Rena DiLando says she didn't have time to read Baldwin's full criminal record because it's so long.
