For some drivers, when they are pulled over by a police officer, it might not be their first time. If the previous times resulted in a warning, citation or even a drunk driving conviction, these past events could affect how a current stop is treated. If a driver has been suspected of impaired operation of a vehicle in the past and those past charges have resulted in a conviction, they could endure serious penalties if they are convicted of another drunk driving charge.
Officers in Dane County recently arrested a Washington State man for a suspected OWI. If he is convicted of this charge, authorities reported that this would make his fifth OWI. According to preliminary reports, officers responded after a driver called 911 and reported a vehicle being driven all over the road on Highway 51.
