Motorcyclist killed in Wisconsin; drunk driving suspected

A man has been charged following the death of a motorcyclist in Madison, according to local sources. Wisconsin police in Dane County arrested a 22-year-old man believed to have been drunk driving at the time of the accident that killed a 46-year-old man. So far, it does not appear he has retained a criminal defense attorney, but he remains in jail against $5,000 bail. 

According to the limited information provided in the report, it appears the 22-year-old man was driving his vehicle on Aug. 2 when the accident occurred. Apparently, the man struck the 46-year-old motorcyclist when he was stopped at a traffic light. The force of the impact killed the man, who was pronounced dead at the scene. Police said the accused man's blood alcohol level was at 0.11 percent when he was arrested, though it was not made clear how they made this determination. 

Police say the man told officers that he had consumed two shots of vodka less than 45 minutes before the accident. He also apparently confirmed that he felt inebriated when the crash happened. He was arrested and taken to jail, where he remains in advance of a court date. 

Drunk driving is a serious charge, particularly when someone is killed as a direct result of the crash. However, the burden of proof still rests with Wisconsin authorities, who will have to provide compelling evidence of the man's alleged intoxication at the time of the crash. His attorney will carefully review any evidence the prosecution hopes to bring before the court in an effort to build a compelling defense against these serious charges.
