A Wisconsin woman is facing drunk driving charges after she reportedly rolled her vehicle. The 54-year-old is now facing a single felony count of operating while intoxicated. Reports state this is the woman’s fifth drunk driving offense.

An officer who responded in November to the early morning wreck alleges he found the woman hiding close to the wreckage of her vehicle. He claims the woman showed signs of driving under the influence (DUI), including slurred speech and also smelled of alcohol. She underwent a medical exam from paramedics, but it is unknown if she suffered any injuries or was transported to the hospital.

He claims the woman showed signs of intoxication including slurred speech and also smelled of alcohol. She underwent a medical exam from paramedics, but it is unknown if she suffered any injuries or was transported to the hospital.

The official report says the woman claims she was traveling home when she lost control of her vehicle trying to avoid crashing into a deer. The SUV then rolled multiple times. The report says the woman acknowledged having three beers that evening. She was arrested, but then released on bond. Pending court proceedings slated for this week, she is barred from operating any vehicle without a valid driver’s license and is not allowed to drink or have any alcohol in her possession.

This woman’s record of prior convictions of drunk driving should not be presumed to mean she is guilty of the most recent offense. Nevertheless, those prior convictions could be used against her and a conviction in this case could result in a lengthy jail sentence. As is always the case, it may be in her best interests to have the help of experienced legal counsel as she responds to the accusations in court.
