Gilbertson was transported to the St. Croix County Jail.

    He needs jail and treatment. 107mph in a 65 is dangerous for him and everyone else especially when he was drunk. The article doesn’t say whether he has already attended treatment with his 3rd or 4th DWI, but I can guess he’ll be sentenced for it this time.

  • Royce Irvin

    treatment not jail….

  • tom

    treatment in the last dwi???? I think this man needs JAIL TIME to the tune of 2 years with mandatory alcohol treatment , DL revoked for LIFE, AND and very stiff fine. People like this will not learn and i hope the judge he goes before does not know the word mercy. Lock this guy up long enough to get the urge to drink and drive out of him.

    • Thomas Schneider

      This is Wisconsin, everyone drinks. Leave the guy alone, you must be a Babtist teettotaler. It sounds like you are following in the footsteps of Susan B Anthony. You see the guy coming just get out of his way and allow the guy to live the life he wants to lead. Just mind your own business.

      • Kimberly Lee

        when he quits driving we can mind our own business. inocent people get killed by drunk drivers every 48 seconds minding their own business. My 6 year old didn’t have a change to get out of the way befor he was killed.

        • Thomas Schneider

          I think you meant chance, I may be wrong. I am sorry about your 6 year old, all my 6 year olds have become over 40. I know a lot happens in life and then the mom’s get mad and the dad’s get mad. I am on a fire department and I see a lot of stuff. I am sure I will see more today but life goes on; eventough, we think it may not. I just hate people getting on the bandwagon everytime they pick up a drunk. Sorry, I live in an Irish community where drinking is a way of life. Do I plan to drink this weekend,? NO. Will I be around a lot of drunks? YES.
          Again I am sorry about your 6 year old.

            how dare you try to “correct” her typo! with “BABTIST and TEETOTALER”, those are spelling errors not typos. Susan B Anthony was a woman who fought for the right to vote, she had no connection to Carrie Nation who fought the demons of alcohol. Sounds like you spent way too much time drinking and skipping school. You want to drink? fine by me just the the heck off the road!

  • Jeff "Gangsta" J

    At least he’s not black.


    • A white dude

      Actually, Jeff, he is “black”…

  • Frank

    Just 5 Dui’s?? Why is this news? In Wisconsin, they call this being a model citizen.

    • Steve

      You are so right. I know a guy in the Eau Claire area he has been arrested 8 times for DUI. He is now facing 3 years in prison but it is fighting it.

  • Common Man

    This guy is making a joke of the legal system. He will kill someone and then it will be wow, the court never really did anything…. even then he would get only 4 years. Do you all see taking a driver license away means nothing to these people.
    Only a good solid 10 years would do any good.

  • Joe

    I love this guy! honestly!

    • moth

      why don’t you marry him?

  • Thomas Schneider

    This is Wisconsin, the guy was simply in a hurry to get to the next watering hole. Give the guy a police escort don’t give him a ticket. The cop needs to be the one to get the ticket for failure to provide escort.

    • What a joke

      You are a moron!

    • cindy

      Tommy…can’t wait until Reggie t-bones your Honda accord wtih your new 3-week old daughter. Yupiee!!

      • Tom's wife

        Wow, Cindy, your pretty nice. Lets go out for coffee one of these days. Maybe catch up with life? Lets actually get drunk, Cindy…

      • Tom's wife

        Actually Cindy… last time I got tailboned was from my husband, if ya get what I’m trying to say ;)

        • Thomas' Boy Toy

          @Tom’s wife –

          You got the shortend of the stick…if you know what I mean ;)

      • Thomas Schneider

        Sorry Cindy, I don’t have a rice burner, although I consider the old lady’s Ford as jap junk. My main rides are all American made: a heavy Chevy truck and an Olds. Also my daughters are close to 50 and 45. That is insulting to think I would actually even be seen near a honda. I even check the labels on food and clothes to make sure they are American made or grown.

    People learn from consequentes, he needs tougher ones. Let them begin…

    Another republican hard at work.

  • Les Johnson
