Man faces 4th drunk driving charge after falling asleep in car

Passing out behind the wheel of a car can be dangerous, especially if it occurs while the vehicle is in gear. However, even if the car is parked outside a building or home, such an act may be viewed by some as suspicious in nature. A 50-year-old man is reportedly facing his fourth drunk driving offense after officers claim to have found him asleep at the wheel outside of a home in Wisconsin.

According to reports, the incident began when officers claim to have found a man slumped over behind the wheel of a vehicle that was parked outside of a local home. Upon approaching the vehicle, police claim to have caught a strong odor of intoxicants coming from within. They also assert that the driver appeared to be exhibiting numerous signs of impairment, such as bloodshot eyes and slurred speech.

Upon being asked to exit the vehicle, police claim the man began to issue threats. They also assert that he refused to comply with request to perform field sobriety tests after being taken into custody. After a breath test allegedly indicated his blood alcohol content to be nearly three times to legal limit to drive, he was charged with suspicion of operating while intoxicated.

The man is reportedly facing charges for what would be his fourth offense for drunk driving should a conviction be obtained. Since the penalties for successive charges are severe, a person could benefit from speaking with an attorney early on for guidance in making informed decisions about his or her case. An attorney can help a client in Wisconsin better understand the consequences he or she may face and assist in forming a strong defense for use during subsequent court proceedings.
