    This is ridiculous!!! Why was he even allowed to get pass a second or third charge. He could have injured or killed someone. Thanks court of law for being so lax in upholding the law and protecting citizens.

  2. Unknown says:

    Because it happened in Wisconsin… Wisconsin is one of the most lax states when it comes to drinking and driving.

  3. Gary Nevin says:

    This type of an offense needs to be classified as assault with the intent to cause bodily harm. Three of these arrests were when the guy was under 21.

  4. Mark Edwards says:

    I’m sorry, just simply Execute him.

  7. um...duh says:

    Operating While Intoxicated…does it ring a bell now???? This guy don’t deserve to drive at all ever!!! But I wouldn’t go so far as to execute him, there are people out there that have done sooo much worse walking around right now……

    At .08 everyone in Wisconson should have one by now. I don’t agree with MADD, Legislation and the Law that says .08 is legally intoxicated. I think it should be .10 and in MN if your charged for 3 DUI’s in 10 years you can be charged a felony which would inprison you for over 5 years. The young man deserves some prison time now but to all that say execute him and blame the law; maybe you should look in the mirror and ask if you been given a 2nd or 3rd chance before. I’m sure if you live in Wisconson you driven drunk before too so knock it off. You didn’t even rip the young 15 year old who put his social studies class in worse danger any grief yet hundreds attended that confused kids funeral. I think you get this guy help who was charged his 7th DUI (WTF is OWI) and inprison him long enough to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Later goofball!

    Straight to jail. Twenty years. No early release.

  14. billy says:

    C’mon, this is Minnesota we are living in, he will hardly get any jail time.

  15. Ralphie says:

    Since even sober Minnesotans drives like drunks, I don’t see the problem. He should just say he was driving liike everybody else.

  16. OUI OWI DWI says:

    OUI is operating under the influence, you could be charged with this if you are drunk or on any sort of drugs while driving, when you get a OWI or a DWI that is the charges for drinking while driving. they had to separate the laws cuz people were getting out of their tickets for driving while on drugs cuz it did not specifically say drugs in the law.

  17. BostonBob says:

    20 years hard time or just shoot the SOB

  18. $$$$$$$ says:

    It’s all about the money!!! Charge him with DWI, OWI, OUI. Now the fun begins! Make him pay a fine($1000+), send him to jail for a few days ($$/day), put an ankle bracelet on him ($$/day), send him to drug eval ($$), send him to MADD meetings ($$), put him on probation ($$/month), and then let him pay $800 to get his license back and do it all over again, but don’t stop the behavior. It’s a money train. Oh and if it’s his 3rd or a gross DWI, take his vehicle and sell it at auction for more money.

    I didn’t think there were dumber people than the posters on the Star Tribune site, but this group takes that cake.

  20. MrM says:

    This is just ridiculous and stupid. Drunk driving should be looked at and dealt with more seriously. Where’s the just in this? How many more need to die or permanently scarred from one person’s stupid decision to drive drunk? The message is clear from this article, if you plan on breaking the law, break it under the influence of alcohol, because punishment will be less severe…sickens me.
