A man suspected of drunk driving is facing up to 14 years 10 months in prison after he did not stop for deputies conducting a OWI stop over the weekend. Instead, he lead officers on a high speed chase on I-43, landing him in a heap of trouble.
Wisconsin Operating While Revoked
Charges against the man may include felony fleeing, operating while revoked, resisting/obstructing an officer and recklessly endangering safety.
Waukesha Drunk Driving Arrest
The man was arrested as part of the Driving Under the Influence initiative, which aggressively seeks to rid Milwaukee County of freeway system drunk drivers.
This weekend’s Operation Drive Sober sting resulted in the arrest of nine drunk drivers, four of which were repeat offenders ranging in age from 27 to 33. The man who fled police was arrested for his 2ND DUI.
Because the state of Wisconsin has the unfortunate distinction of having more drunk drivers than any other state in the country, law enforcement takes the matter very seriously. Whether it is your first offense or subsequent offense, it is important to seek the help of an experienced criminal defense attorney.
