ROCK COUNTY (WKOW) -- A Janesville man is arrested for his fourth OWI offense after deputies say he was driving on the wrong side of the road.

The Rock County Sheriff's Office says around 1:12 a.m. Friday, a deputy saw an SUV going north in the southbound lanes of U.S. 51 near West B/R Townline Road. The deputy stopped the vehicle and smelled intoxicants coming from the driver, Thomas Kotlowski, 50, of Janesville.

The deputy gave Kotlowski a field sobriety test, which the sheriff's office says he failed. Kotlowski was arrested for OWI.
