2 separate Wisconsin drunk driving incidents lead to arrests
Two Wisconsin men are facing drunk driving charges in separate incidents. In the first incident, a 26-year-old man was taken into custody after a report came in stating that the man had pulled into a parking lot on only three wheels. When police responded, he was taken into custody under suspicion of drunk driving.
Authorities saw the man bringing his missing wheel to his car. He stated that he had lost control of his vehicle on wet pavement and then hit a curb. While police were able to confirm his story, they noticed that he was likely speeding because he skidded over the curb and drove through a flower bed. Police noticed that the man was allegedly unsteady while standing up and issued sobriety and breathalyzer tests.

The second man was taken into custody after he ran a red light. The officer pursued the driver and found him stopped in a street intersection and blocking traffic. The man refused sobriety tests and was taken to the hospital for a required blood draw.
Both men are facing drunk driving charges in connection with these separate incidents. Fortunately, they are innocent until proven guilty and will have the opportunity to refute the charges against them in a Wisconsin court of law. Drunk driving convictions can net harsh consequences so it is important for such defendants to mount a valid and relevant defense in their cases. A conviction on such charges could send accused individuals to jail, so defendants may want to ensure that they understand their legal rights before preparing their defenses.
