    Any person who, while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or substances in a manner and to a degree prohibited by § 32-23-1, without design to effect death, operates or drives a vehicle of any kind in a negligent manner and that person:

            (1)    Has two or more convictions for a violation of § 32-23-1 occurring within ten years of the date of the violation being charged excluding any period of time during which the person was incarcerated for a previous violation;

            (2)    Has at any time been convicted of a violation of § 22-16-41 or 22-18-36; or

In the event the person is returned to imprisonment prior to the completion of the period of driver license revocation, time spent imprisoned does not count toward fulfilling the period of revocation.
