Driving problem on railroad tracks leads to OWI arrest

Saukville police came across a car stuck on the railroad tracks at West Dekora and Railroad streets with the driver still in the car shortly after 2 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, according to a police report.

According to the report:

The driver, a 52-year-old Port Washington man, told police he was trying to get to a nearby gas station when he got stuck.

The man stumbled as he got out of the car. While speaking with the man, police observed that his eyes were bloodshot and glassy and they could smell alcohol on his breath.

The man told police he had approximately three beers and was “probably drunk.” He failed standardized field sobriety tests, and a preliminary breath test showed a 0.13 blood-alcohol level, exceeding the legal state limit of 0.08.  

The man was arrested and taken to the Ozaukee County Jail and cited for first-offense operating while under the influence.
