Two drivers in separate incidents arrested for 6th OWI

Posted:

TOWN OF WINDSOR (AP) -- Two drivers in separate incidents have each been arrested on tentative charges of sixth-offense drunken driving.

A Wisconsin State Journal report says the first arrest happened Friday about 4:45 p.m.  Police say a 60-year-old New Glarus man tried to turn into a driveway and drove into the path of another vehicle.

The New Glarus man was injured, and three people in the other vehicle, including a 1-year-old boy were apparently all right.

The man was arrested on tentative charges including sixth-offense drunken driving.

About five hours later, a 31-year-old Dane County woman was arrested after striking a parked vehicle.  The DeForest woman was also tentatively charged with a sixth drunken-driving offense as well as suspicion of inattentive driving.
