Man in Wisconsin faces DUI charge

A Milwaukee man is under arrest here in Wisconsin after two hit-and-run crashes were attributed to him, according to local sources. Wisconsin police arrested the 70-year-old man, who is now charged with DUI. It is unclear whether he remains in police custody at this time or if he has retained defense counsel. No court date has been announced. 

According to the report, around 6 p.m. on Sept. 1, the man's vehicle was seen heading northbound in Whitefish Bay. Officers on the scene were informed that vehicle had been involved in two earlier hit-and-run crashes, and it had been the subject of a third driving complaint. Police were told the driver rear-ended a westbound vehicle stopped at a stop sign before crashing into a southern guardrail. 

North Shore Fire Department was on the scene to evaluate the man's condition. He was transported to a local hospital with minor injuries police say he suffered during the first two accidents. The man allegedly admitted to police that he had been drinking after officers confronted him with clues regarding his apparent intoxication. They did not expound on what those clues entailed. 

In order for the man to be convicted of DUI in a Wisconsin court, prosecutors will have to provide compelling evidence to suggest he was indeed intoxicated at the time of the accidents he allegedly caused. His attorney will work to build a defense against the charge by carefully reviewing the facts of the case, including the clues noted by police. As in all American court cases, the man is presumed innocent until proven guilty.
