Wisconsin man accused of 4th drunk driving offense

Many individuals have been accused of driving under the influence of alcohol based upon the allegations of others nearby. When law enforcement agents receive reports of a possible intoxicated driver, an investigation into the matter is conducted. A 61-year-old man was recently arrested on suspicion of his fourth drunk driving offense after witnesses claim he was exhibiting erratic driving behavior in a parking lot in Wisconsin.

Authorities claim to have received reports from several individuals at around 2 a.m. on a recent Sunday of a vehicle that was being operated in an erratic manner. According to these reports, the man was allegedly driving the vehicle without the use of headlights and came close to striking several parked cars and a building. Authorities responded to the scene, and after finding the man outside of his residence, he was placed under arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Other than the reports of those who claimed to have witnessed the incident, there was no indication of how authorities came to suspect he was intoxicated at the time. According to reports, he could be facing a felony charge for OWI, the penalties of which are severe if a conviction is obtained. Those who face similar charges may wish to protect themselves from potentially devastating consequences, but the process can be complex.

When facing drunk driving charges of this nature, an individual may find it beneficial to seek guidance before responding to allegations. By speaking with an attorney, a accused individual in Wisconsin could obtain assistance in forming a strong defense. An attorney can examine the charges and evidence against a client and provide advice on the best course of action to take during court proceedings.
